We've been focusing on latitude and longitude - but with grids. We've played Battleship, and placed Louis Tomlinson... We've denoted the Equator, and the Prime Meridian.
But until today, we haven't looked at it on a map.
I thought the students would just be able to pick it up. Really, it's the same thing we've been doing for the last week and a half. ...But for some reason, they found it difficult.
We'll get it though. I'm confident. And it won't be long.
We also retook the continents and oceans quiz. I hope to have those grades in the gradebook by the end of the day. It wouldn't hurt to check grades. There are several in there now.
If students want extra credit today, they need to check their grades with their parents (or some other adult.) Write down your social studies grade on a piece of paper. Have the adult you read the blog with sign the paper.
Turn it in tomorrow for extra credit. (Make sure your name, date, and hour are on it.)
