Our Delicious Earth

on March 20, 2014

We have just recently wrapped up our first Mapwork section in Social Sciences. Within this section we looked at many different aspects, from Atlas Skills to Exploration to Map Projections. The children learned that there are three common map projections. We then did an activity to demonstrate with an orange, a permanent marker and a scalpel, how the Earth changes from a spherical globe to a 2-dimensional map.

This was a great example of learning through doing and showed that, as is the norm at Elkanah House, learning is fun!
