Getting to the Point

If you were out in the middle of the wilderness, could you find where you are on a map? In this activity, young orienteers use the method of triangulation to find a location in your room and on a topographic map. This could be a wonderful activity to use for an outdoor study trip or as a math activity that connects to a literature book that deals with adventure.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
