After each student had their map copied I gave them specific directions such as find Antarctica and put a 1 on it, Find Australia and mark it with a 2, etc. After we marked the continents, I asked students to use the recording feature to tell which continent we lived on and to put a star on it.
On the United States map, students were to label the cardinal directions, locate and circle the state that we live in and as a bonus, mark where we live in our state. They then recorded this information for moms and dads.
At then end of the day I was able to easily see and hear student's responses to my questions. Before sharing this assessment with parents, I put a comment under each students' map sharing with parents what the standard was that I was assessing and shared what number each continent was supposed to be. This ended up being a great way to keep parents informed of their child's progress and gave them a quick glance at what they could help their child with at home.
