So Mrs. Brinza gave students a whole range of cities, and students had to use the maps to figure out two things:
1. If there was any freshwater nearby.
2. And if so, how much of the area within a specific range was freshwater.
*They're not writing on the computer screens--but rather drawing on transparency grids on top of the screens!
If you live by the Great Lakes, like us here in Chicago, then you're pretty lucky since the Great Lakes are REALLY big compared to other places. All this map work got us thinking though, and we generated some really good wonderings for our next investigations!
