Performance Task 1: Students as Cartographers


Goal: Your goal is to produce a map, with your partner that correctly identifies the locations of Georgias five regions and its major rivers. Role: You are a cartographer who is plotting and illustrating the locations of Georgias major rivers and five regions correctly on a map to be included in the Georgia History Exhibit at the Georgia Museum of History. Audience: You (second grade students) will be presenting your maps to Ms. Map Key, a museum curator, who will be visiting our class after our maps are finished to decide which maps she is going to include in the museums new state of Georgia History Exhibit. Situation: Some very valuable maps, which were drawn in the 1900s (very old!), have been stolen from the Georgia Museum of History. The museum curator has asked us, the number one (#1) cartography company in the country, to recreate the maps that were stolen so that the museums Georgia History Exhibit can go on as scheduled. Your job is to work with a partner and recreate one Georgia map with all five of the regions and the major rivers neatly and correctly drawn on the map using the provided parchment paper. The curator is expecting excellence, so please do your very best! Product Performance and Purpose: You (and your partner) will draw the boundary lines for each Georgia region as well as draw the major rivers of Georgia onto the blank map, provided by your boss. You will need to label each region and river and illustrate each region with different colors. You will also need to identify one important thing about each region and place it on your map. Make sure to include a legend and compass rose for your map. You and your partner will work together taking turns, sharing ideas, and jobs (i.e., drawing, labeling, coloring, presenting, etc.). You are your partner will then be asked to share your teams map with the rest of the companys employees (the class) and with Ms. Map Key (the museum curator). Ms. Map Key will use the attached rubric to check the completeness of your map in order to decide whose map(s) will be used in the Georgia History Exhibit.
