Fifth graders continued work on their world maps this week. Students are finishing measuring and sketching continents to approximate their sizes. Next, they will glue continents to their maps and begin researching/labeling physical and political features. We discovered one mistake in our maps -- we didn't realize that the prime meridian is curved on the Robinson projection. We had just counted 12 lines of longitude and assumed that marked the prime meridian -- oops!
