Map Scale

My students are getting pretty good at drawing the world from memory.  We'll see what the pay-off is later.  I didn't give them as much time for that as I was planning.  #Thanks2HourDelay

We spent most of our time together looking at maps of various sizes, and discussing scale.  Although the scale of the maps changed dramatically, the distances between two points on the maps remained the same - because the world itself doesn't change.

Although we didn't have much time, we figured out distances using two different world maps.  

Tomorrow and Wednesday I'm hoping for more time.  Maybe we'll finish up map scale, and latitude and longitude.

I'm keeping the post short today.

Thanks for reading.
