How Do We get from Here to There?

Latitude and Longitude

Students have been working with latitude and longitude throughout the course of the week. We reviewed terms such as compass rose, Prime Meridian, cartographer and more. Many children were able to determine coordinates out to minutes and seconds. 

As the week ended, we were trying to determine how to get from one side of the globe to the other by going in the opposite direction. Some children went straight to math while others drew pictures. One even tried to map it out as if they were going on a road trip. 

All of the children were happy to get up to the board and work out their thinking as a group.
