Students compare and contrast the locations of people, places, and environments and describe the human and physical characteristics of places by:
1. determining the relative location of objects using near/far, left/right, behind/in front
2. distinguishing between land and water and locating general areas referenced in
historically-based legends and stories on maps and globes
3. identifying traffic symbols and map symbols (legend references to land, water, roads, and cities)
4. constructing maps and models of neighborhoods, incorporating such structures as police and fire stations, airports, banks, hospitals, supermarkets, harbors,
schools, homes, places of worship, and transportation lines
5. demonstrating familiarity with the school's layout, environs and the jobs people do there
