Socials 8-1 and 8-2: Geographic coordinates practice
Today I started by sharing your term marks and reminding you of any work that is missing. We discussed the Global Positioning System had the reason why pen and paper skills are still relevant in the digital age. We then reminded ourselves how to plot geographic coordinates on a map. This included finding the hemispheres and estimating when points did not fall directly on line intersections. This is one of the last lessons before of geography unit test. Next class we'll look at climate graphs and measuring distance on a map using the scale. There is no homework except for the few students who have yet to hand in missing work.
