Explore how and where maps are used before being challenged to create a map of bedroom, backyard, neighbourhood, schoolyard etc. Students might like to use Minecraft to create a 3D model of space.

Students will explore how and where maps are used in everyday life through the telling of a story about a very curious cat. They will be introduced to the basic idea of the design process then asked to create a map to a special lost item. Once this map has been created teachers will have the option of challenging students to bring their maps to 3-dimensional life through the use of hands on materials or in a virtual Minecraft world.
