Map Unplugged Activity
Map Symbols Unplugged
In this unplugged lesson, students learn the importance of symbols on a map. They begin by review cardinal directions as they code their way from symbol to symbol on the map. They conclude the lesson by creating a map of their own, complete with symbols!
This lesson is part of the Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline which is partly funded through a GO Virginia grant in partnership with Chesapeake Public Schools, Loudoun County Public Schools, and the Loudoun Education Foundation.
Driving Question: How can we, as cartographers, use algorithms and map symbols to navigate a map?
