Even though we are all staying very close to home at the moment, map making can be a great way to think about your environment in a different way. Whether it is reading maps in order to explore the local area,  giving and following directions, or even making layout plans for rooms in your house, mapping skills help develop spatial awareness and can be great fun to learn.

There are some great activities here, including creating maps using Lego bricks, making maps of your local area, going on virtual journeys using Google Street View and ideas for projects like making your own working compass.  There are also suggestions for research, games, arts and crafts, Maths puzzles and of course, our latest use for a toilet roll tube.  Enjoy!
