Me on the Map Unit

 I have had a zillion requests for the templates for the Me on the Map circle flip book I posted about last year.

You can read about it here if you missed it. As I mentioned during that post, this project was not mine but my teaching friend Robi's so I have not felt the templates were mine to share.

However, I have been told that others are copying it and making money from it and I feel badly that Robi is not getting the credit (or profit since she has a freshman in college!)

So, I finally talked her into partnering up with me to not only share all those templates and step-by-step directions but a whole 40 page unit packed with other activities we do during our map unit!

This map unit covers:
Cardinal Directions cards, map worksheet and activities
Map Features including a brace map and cut and glue worksheet
The Compass Rose
Models versus Maps clay project including a double bubble map and writing activity
Vocabulary matching cards and activities
A Make Your Own Pirate Map culminating activity (the kids love this one!)
and other teaching ideas

You can grab your copy of our new unit here or by clicking on the picture below.

And don't forget that I am offering 20% off everything in my store Monday and Tuesday!

I have been on the computer literally ALL day trying to get his finished so I must go rest my eyes now. Tomorrow is put up the Christmas tree day. Thank goodness we still have one more day off...yippee!!!



  1. I'll be sure to buy from the original! Isn't that frustrating when somebody copies your idea and profits from it?! When I first started my TPT shop, I posted several fun crafts that I used to do with my kids. About a year later, a few more popular bloggers began posting craft ideas almost identical to mine, which really hurt my profits. I got really discouraged and stopped creating for awhile. It's good to know that I am not the only one this has happened to. The first time it happened I was really upset, but I have to believe that life has it's own way of working things out... :)


  2. If it makes you feel any better, here in NC we have been doing the Me on the Map idea for years. The teacher that shared it with me had it shared with her from another teacher. It has been around here for many, many years. :) But that is frustrating for people to copy your work and not give credit where credit is due.
