Mapping - Understanding 2D and 3D

We built cities out of blocks and math manipulatives in small groups.  The students loved their cities (some asked for a white sheet underneath to design roads).  We had to take photos.
The next day it occurred to me to make a map of our 3D structures.  Then we added a legend.  We had already made a map of our classroom but the legend concept was tough for many.
This time everyone was able to identify and label three structures from their map in their legend!
