Treasure Map

To create your own treasure island map you will need the following:

  1. Sketch the shape of your island on the white construction paper.
  2. On your island you may include symbols for the following: hills, mountains, ponds and lakes, trees and forests, and your treasure.
  3. Draw a compass rose in the lower right hand corner.
  4. Name and label any ocean, cove or bay that surrounds your island.
  5. When your map is finished, press the damp tea bag over it. Fold the map carefully and tear the edges to make it look old.
