Map Work

Tonight, we looked at two different maps of the world. One was terribly distorted due to the stretching of the North and South poles in an effort to make a flat map. Not only did this map make Greenland appear HUGE, it also decentralized Africa. The other map was rounded and oval shaped in an effort to more truly represent the world and its contents. We did a Map Quest to identify Tanzania's boundaries, the EAC (East African Community), features such as Lake Victoria, the Nile river, and Mount Kilamanjaro. We also discussed our trip and our preparations for the trip. I have my tickets in hand and I can't wait! Tanzania is exactly 1 month away...
