Great Car Games These three games can be modified for the classroom: using a map of the classroom, blue print layout of the school building, or a map of the school's surrounding neighborhood.
It can also be used as a project map given for homework, such as having the child use a map that covers the area to home and school, whether by school bus or family car. Also to map family routes done on the weekend (elected by family choice). i.e.: grocery store, parent's job site, grandparent's home, etc.

Some fun activities:
"Where Are We?", "Which Way Is Up?", "What's Your Perspective?", "Can You Find It?".
