First Grade Maps

 

These were created as aids for an inquiry project where students learned about their neighborhood as well as maps and concepts of urban planning like zoning, building use and population density. The top map is interactive and uses American Community Survey data to estimate where the people of Bedford Stuyvesant come form. The bottom is one of a few print maps that look at the blocks surrounding the school in terms of land use, population density, housing capacity, etc. They are based on New York City tax lot data.
