Lat Long Forest

We practiced L&L today using a forest of trees.  By the end of the hour, I felt really confident that the students would ace the quiz if I gave it tomorrow.

But I'm not giving it tomorrow.  I'm giving it Friday.

One thing to take note of from today - the Prime Meridian and the Equator are not always in the middle of the map.  The maps we used were nice, because the Prime Meridian and Equator were bold.  So, although they weren't found in the middle of the map, they were still easily distinguished.

To get the extra credit today, answer the following question: how can you tell if a line is the Prime Meridian or Equator if it is not bold, and it's not in the middle of the map?

Write your answer on a scrap piece of paper, and then have the adult you read the blog with sign it.

See you tomorrow.
