Mapping the Setting -- Key Symbols

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.

Click here to get a free printable version of the map and key.

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

Writing Legends is also available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
