I'm always looking for ways to combine social studies skills into literacy. I developed this printable to go with my writing legends unit.
Students wrote their own legends and made a map of the setting. You can decide if you want them to create the map on the graph paper, or if you want them to create a map on another sheet of paper and use the key for a guide.
I found that as my students created their maps they added details to their stories. The maps became a bulletin board with their illustrations.

Writing Legends: A Hero's Quest is available in my Teachers Notebook store.
Writing Legends is also available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
