Map Skills

Have students use a North Dakota map to indicate the location of each of the county courthouses of North Dakota.

Using a large U.S. map where each state is cut out, have students select a state(s) so all 50 states in the United States are represented. Students will write a personal trait of theirs related to being a good citizen on their state(s), cut out and place it either on a poster board or on a bulletin board in the correct location on the map. The students will then discuss how each of the traits is important in helping make the world a better place in which to live. Partner a student with another student who has a different trait or gift. Have them together research how to transform these talents into action through an act of volunteering. Each pair will present its findings to the class.
