I'm student teaching third grade and I'm going to be teaching the cardinal directions. To do that, I have a worksheet that has a map of Mexico that shows the directions that someone has taken while traveling throughout the country. The students have to label each part of the path as going North, East, South, or West. We're going to do it together as a class and to make it more engaging, I thought I could make up a story to go along this person's travels through Mexico. But I don't know what to put in the story. Do you have any ideas? Also, I was thinking of showing pictures of the places that the person traveled to, would that be a good idea, or would that be too much?
