I’m always looking at maps, often to plan a blog post. I borrow more maps from the library than I do books and I can sit and look at a map in the same way that someone might sit and read a book. You can learn so much.
Maps use symbols to represent features and usually have a key to tell you what they mean. But if you know what they mean, then you can “read” the map much more fluently.
You can download a free set of flashcards for the OS Landranger maps from here: https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/education/map-symbol-flashcards.html
You can just use these as flashcards but if you would like access to my multi-level activity guide, then sign up for my newsletter and choose “Geography worksheets and ideas for further study.”
