We are learning to create grid references to show where landmarks are on a map.
We created our own treasure maps to show our learning.

We had to find grid references and then choose what landmark would go at each reference on our map.


Kamora-Lee and Gemma's map. Each house started with a number in the driveway and the rods were worth 10 so they counted in tens to count their steps between houses e.g. 1,11,21,32
Riley showed the number of steps and the direction he took to walk to each house
Holly's map of her walk to her friends house showing the number of steps and the direction she took
Damarco and Whetu worked collaboratively to create their map
Angus's map showing the number of steps and the direction he took. His house started with 9 steps on the driveway then counted in tens so 9,19,29,39 .....
Jessica and Mac working out how many steps around a park
Georgina and Coopa working out how many steps around their park
each cube was worth 19 so each block was +20 -1
Jordan creating the end of his trail using blocks worth 17 so solving the problem as +20 - 3
Tyler and Charlie working collaboratively
Caitlin and Jasmine creating a trail with blocks worth 9 so counting up using the strategy of +10 - 1
