This Project Based Learning idea was a hit with my elementary students! They loved diving into map skills and landforms and, of course, burying their own treasure! This is a great way to introduce PBL activities in an engaging way. This PBL resource includes rubrics and step-by-step directions. A great way to assess map skills in your 21st Century classroom!
