We're trying something new today. ...Well... new for me. Mr. Swanson made an activity last year. Students were given a map of the school, with a grid super-imposed on the top. Students labeled the grid by increments of 10. After that, they start at a base, and use the coordinates to lead them to their next spot.
One of the students today told me she felt like "a secret agent." Dang... that's exactly what we were going for.
We didn't get to have all the students go today. Some practiced plotting some more - but not to worry. Tomorrow the roles will be reversed.
I'll add some pictures to this blog post when there's time. ...And when I have some pictures.
Don't forget that there's a latitude/longitude quiz on Friday.
