Map Mania

Map Mania from SWEP Newquay Zoo  
An education project for schools, NC stages 2,3 & 4 

Object was to examine other curriculum areas besides science based ones. Linked to NC at stages 2,3&4. Also encourages children to work as a team and communicate effectively.

The children use a compass to follow clues and find answers to questions about the zoo and the animals. It teaches the children to learn map skills in an interesting and unique setting. Most of the answers are found on enclosures and relate to where the animals come from.
