Story and photo submitted by Carlisle Local School District

CARLISLE, OH -- Students in Julie Lee's  6th grade Social Studies are learning about different types of maps as well as how to use latitude and longitude. 

Each class was divided into groups of 5 or 6 and were tasked with creating their own country. In doing this, they needed to determine where in the word their country would be using latitude and longitude. They also used the latitude of their country to determine the climate of their country.

The maps that the students created were political maps, which included the 5 parts of a map:

  • Title.
  • Scale.
  • Legend.
  • Compass.
  • Latitude and Longitude.

Each group presented their map and country using a Google slide presentation.
