In maths, we are learning about mapping. So Miss Lavars gave us a ‘Google Maps’ investigation.
First we had to locate our school on Google Maps.
After we had done that, we looked carefully at the scale. We noticed as we zoomed in and out, the scale got bigger and smaller.
We then used the scale to locate somewhere that was 2 and a half kilometers away from our school.
After we had done that, we figured out how many kilometers far away we were from Melbourne. Then we investigated, what if we travelled that distance, in different directions? Where would we end up?
It was a very interesting investigation, which we will continue this week!
