Hello all,

We have been getting into map skills and geography review here in Social Studies and I wanted you to see what we have been talking about. I have attached some notes that we have been working on dealing with what all good maps need. We call it TALDOGS, maybe you could ask your Gnome about them. See if they can remember what each letter stands for without looking. They should also be able to tell you why a map needs each of these elements. In the next few days we will be drawing a map of our classroom and applying all of the TALDOGS elements, after that we will be having a quiz dealing with TALDOGS.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Mr. H
