Fourth graders at A.W. Becker studying the geography of New York, created their own map representations of the state last week. Students included New York’s major cities, bodies of water and geographical features in their maps. They also contained a map key or legend as well as a compass rose to demonstrate what they had learned about maps in their Social Studies class.
Mrs. Agostinoni’s, Mrs. Baumgras’s, Mrs. Conway’s and Conti’s, and Mrs. Tutay’s class all participated in the project.
