Me On the Map: An Early Elementary Social Studies Guide
Exploring Your Students Place in the World
Me On the Map is a great early introduction to social studies by giving them an overall picture of how they fit into the larger world. This study guide is compiled of 8 units to help them learn all about their home, street, city, state, country, continent, and planet.
Each unit includes:
– Discussion questions or writing prompts
– Book list
– Activities and crafts
– Explore section to learn more with videos or printables
– Field trip ideas
– Dive Deeper section to continue learning if interested
All of the units also have easy to read instruction pages for crafts and activities, multiple maps and fill in the blank pages to print for your students, and a template to create the circle wheel project. All About Me project at the end completes the guide.
Best for ages 4-8 years. Perfect for homeschool, classroom, or co-op.
This guide does focus on the United States, but it is easily adaptable if you live in other places of the world. Optional pages for a province are provided instead of a state.

This social studies unit is perfect for my kindergartner. It is set up for quick easy lessons, includes a book list and a way to add to each lessons. There are also snack and craft ideas. I didn’t even add art for this year or a list of read aloud since both are included in these lesson plans. This would also be great for older elementary age kids to learn more about roads and work on memorizing their address.

My kiddos (7 and 4) both LOVED this Unit Study! We had the best time with all of the activities and recipes. I love how everything is put together as well; just open and go. We are currently doing the AG Unit and love it just as much!

My boys and I learned so much about our town and community through this study! The book lists are excellent, as well as the crafts and snacks. I loved the flexibility of the lessons and stretched out some weeks so we could get even more in-depth or do a field trip. Each of us enjoyed Me on the Map and did not want the study to end!

We have used me on the map, me and my amazing body and the American girl history. My kids love all the crafts and hands on activities. They have truly
looked forward to the lessons, while learning so much. Highly recommend!

We are finishing up this unit and are excited to do Me and my Place in Space next! These units are filled with wonderful resources including book lists and activities. My son loved the hands on approach.

My kiddos have loved Me on the Map! I love how it starts with home and works all the way out to the planet. I like how it adapts to wherever you live. Learned lots about our community and state. We are doing the final chapter next month and I think it’ll be the best wrap up to the unit.
