    Smile sample street maps

    Hello all, I am looking for a website where I can print out street maps to use when teaching "how to give directions" in English class.
    Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Google Maps would be my first choice for any kind of maps: Google Maps.

    Thank you for your reply but I have already spent a very long time indeed trying to find such a simple teaching aid. I thought to save anymore frustration I'd ask for help.

    Are you saying you couldn't find what you need with Google Maps?

    Or, if they're not appropriate, you could use an idea I saw another teacher use (in a Portuguese class, as a matter of fact, but it would be just as good for English). Give out blank sheets of paper, and get your students to fold them in 8 (good practice for imperatives), and then unfold them. You explain that each crease represents a road. The students have counters or dolls or figurines or whatever, and have to move their place marker in accordance with their partner's instructions.

    I also saw another teacher who had done a bit more preparation, but not much. They had drawn a blank street-plan and photocopied it. Each student had a copy of the blank. They had five minutes introducing new vocabulary (cinema, supermarket, police station ...), then student A drew five places somewhere on the map, while student B did the same (with five others, randomly chosen). (Or if you had time on your hands (!) , each pair could have ten cards - picture prompts - dealt evenly between them.) They then told each other how to get to places (quite fun, when A's petrol station occupied the same space as B's swimming pool).
