Mapping with a Compass: A Simulated Survey

Students use compasses and grids to map the locations of artifacts found in a simulated dig site. In groups, they role-play as future archeologists excavating a school site. Groups begin at their assigned datum and site the artifacts with compasses, record the bearings, and measure the distances. Students draw scale maps of the artifacts and their locations.

I use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
