Map out your adventures Activity

November 15, 1998

Many of the books you will read involve interesting locations - an island, a neighborhood, a land far away, a journey. As you read the story, draw a map of where everything is. You will need paper and colored pencils for this project. Add different features and landmarks as you continue reading. Label as much as you can and make your map colorful. You might want to include a key so that the map will be easier to understand. It is helpful to have a map if a story is complex. You can refer to it if you get lost.

Note: Check the map in Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" and the maps in J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings."
