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.

What is a Map?


Social Studies Alive My School and Family Curriculum.  Children learn about maps, including aireal views and the creation of map symbols which make up the map key. After listening to a story about an escaped mouse, they first study a map of the setting and then help create a map of the story setting and discover the use of a key and symbols on a map. Then in as a skill builder they practice reading different types of map.
