Drawing a map of the places in a story can be an enjoyable way to help children imagine the setting. Often a character goes on a journey in a story. Children can show this on a map too.
With young children this could be done by taking photos of your child playing the story, putting these in order and looking at them together on the camera or computer screen or printing them out and arranging them together.
Here is a sequence for We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury including packing a bag, splashing through an imaginary river and finding a bear.
Older children could draw their own map,
if you have read them the book, you can suggest things to include.
Here is an example based on the book Pugs of the Frozen North
by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre
