Tools of Geography

It is hard to believe that we are almost a month into the school year! Time sure has flown by! In our 6th grade geography classes, students have been learning about the Tools of Geography. In this chapter we have learned all the important parts of a map, latitude and longitude, the importance of the equator and the prime meridian. Finally we have learned how to find absolute location by using coordinates to find cities. The students have had to find certain cities on Earth and choose their top five choices for places they'd like to visit. The overall top five choices have been...

1. Rio de Janiero, Brazil




2. Tokyo, Japan




3. ST. Petersburg, Russia




4. Rome, Italy




5. Lima, Peru
