Gillispie “Gem of the Week”

IMG_9364

Gillispie Grade 3 students became cartographers this week!

After field trips to The Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla and the Hornblower, the children were asked to design and create a map of their very own island.

The island map included symbols to show the island’s natural features, a key using the symbols, a clever name and title, and a scale. It also had to include 5 natural features, 5 man-made features, and of course, proper grammar.
