Notebook Work: Write or recite the answers to the following questions, in full sentences:

1. On what street or road is your home?

2. Which side of the street is your home on? Between what streets is your home?

3. In which direction does your home building face?

4. How many rooms has the building? In what part of the building is your room? How large is it? How many doors and windows? How many seats?

5. In what direction is the library from your home?

6. How far is the library from your home?

7. How long does it take you to walk to the library?

8. Draw a plan of the top of your table, showing two books and an inkstand upon it. First, measure the sides. Then decide to what scale you will draw your plan.

9. Now draw a plan of your home and grounds. You must measure not only the house, but the width and length of the yard. The plan must show the size, shape, and place of everything upon the grounds. (While drawing a plan of this kind, it is better to let the pupils face the north. The top of the plan should be the north side of the grounds.)

10. Draw a plan of your own room at home, showing the table, bed, chairs, and other objects in it.

Instructor: It is wrong to teach that the top of a map or plan is always north; as often as not, the bottom is north, in plans especially.
