A plat is a map that shows how a big piece of land is divided up into smaller pieces, like a puzzle. It's like a blueprint for a neighborhood, showing where each house, street, and park will go.
Let's say there's a big field that a developer wants to turn into a neighborhood with 50 houses. The plat would show where each house will go, along with the streets, sidewalks, and parks.

Oh, a plat is a map, my friend,
That shows how land is split and penned.
It's like a puzzle, piece by piece,
Dividing land to make it lease.
A big field with grass and trees,
A plat shows where each house will please.
With streets and sidewalks all laid out,
A neighborhood, no need to doubt.
So when you see a plat, you'll know,
It's a map for houses and parks to grow!
In big plat books, they can be found,
A land blueprint, to build a town!
