Social Studies Mapping Skills

We are currently studying
Mapping Skills

We have headed out on our first journey around the world to discover the 7 continents. Our first quizzle on the continents required more practise and our second quizzle revealed great success.

Our next focus brought us all back to North America where we have studied all the oceans of the world; as well as, Latitude and Longitude.

We will be discussing the following: The Arctic CircleThe EquatorTropic of  CancerTropic of CapricornNorth and South Pole
We will then move to lines of Longitude which will take us to Greenwich, England and the Prime Meridian.The International Date Line

Since our class quizzle went so well we are heading back to Canada. Our next challenge is to identify all the Provinces / Territories with their capital cities. We will be doing class maps and interactive flash cards to help with this skill. 

Our first Social Studies Test revealed challenges for a number of students in identifying Provinces and Capitals. A re-test has been planned for Wednesday, October 31st.
