Social Studies 9/15-9/19
Social Studies This Week:
This week, students will be working with determining distance on a map. We will work with map scales and also the distance tool on Google Maps. Students will also discuss the difference between political and physical maps. We will end the week with a video about the ongoing situation in Ukraine and how civil and social unrest often leads to maps changing. Student resources for the week can be found here (LINK).
