Making "Old" Treasure Maps with our K-1 Buddies

This afternoon, Val's class and my class got together as usual for K-1 Buddy time. We read a story called Treasure Map (really a math story about reading maps), and then Val showed us a clever trick to make paper look like the old map in the story. Children drew their treasure map, tore the edges, and crumpled the paper up. After that they soaked it in coffee water. We are all very pleased with the results!
