Lesson 1: four figure grid reference
I DO: Active listening please
Many maps have a grid of squares drawn on the map to make it easy to find, or locate things. Four figure grid references are the numbers which help us to locate a particular square.
 The first two numbers tell us how far to go along the bottom or top of the map.
 The last wo numbers tell us how far to go up the sides of the map.

LESSON 2: six FIGURE GRID REFERENCE
I DO: ACTIVE LISTENING PLEASE
We can find exact points on a map by using six numbers of figures.
 The first three numbers tell us how far to go along the bottom or top of the map. The third number tells us the number of tenths of a grid square.
 The last three figures tell us how far to go up the side of the map. The sixth number tells us the number of tenths of the grid square.
 On a map you may have to estimate the tenths of each grid square. Remember that five tenths is a half a grid square.
