Assessing the Situation

Fifth graders use the scale, the key, and longitude and latitude on a map to determine where they have crashed. They use the map scale to determine the distance to the nearest city and how long it will take them to get there. They describe the motion of an object by tracing and measuring its position over time. This is a fun way for students to explore coordinates on Earth and location using latitude and longitude.
