    Padraig,

    have you much experience with map work with 2nd class? I was doing some simple map activity with my Brownie Guides (ages 8-10 – most are 1st-4th class) and was surprised at how complicated they found the maps. They found it very difficult to give directions to a place from a map of the local area (that we had walked through the previous week) -I wonder if they are driven so much that they don’t have a sense of turning left or right at junctions to be able to navigate.

    Near me, the Tidy Town associations have local maps and that is what we use. I have also generated my own map of the local area from Open Street Map, which is copyright free: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/51.89989/-8.40296
