Today, we reviewed the World Geography worksheet. Make sure it's complete and that you know it VERY WELL.
Next, I introduced the Map of Laguna that we'll be making.
Here's the questions that you'll be asking yourself today and tonight to be ready to begin drawing our maps in class tomorrow...click the link and you'll see those questions.
Today, we began drawing our maps of Laguna Beach. I gave each student a large piece of paper and a worksheet that spells out exactly what to label and color.
Here's all the stuff we'll try to label today on your map. Go slow and write in pencil first!!!!
#5 Label and draw a small RED building for the following important service buildings: City Hall, Mission Hospital (draw a small hospital, 4 fire stations, Main Beach Lifeguard station, Police Station)
#6 Draw Aliso Creek in Blue and label it and then draw/label Barbara’s Lake
#7 Lightly shade our parks green and LABEL Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, Aliso Beach Park, Crystal Cove State Park
#8 See if you can label the cities around us: Laguna Niguel, Aliso viejo, Newport Beach and Dana Point. Label them small so we have plenty of room on the map.

Today, we'll do the 2nd day part of your Laguna Map. Make sure you label everything on your instructions from #1 to #8. If you finish everything, do the following:
