Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Maps and Local Community



In this unit, students will learn about how places in a community tell us about the people who live and work there. Experiences in this unit include a walking field trip to a local shopping area. Students will create maps, inquire about communities, and express opinions about important parts of our community.

Learning Targets: 
Students will be able to compare and contrast our community with communities in other countries and times.
Students will be able to identify and use key features of a map.
Students will be able to discuss the important parts of a community.
Students will be able to express an opinion about an essential part of our community.
