Michigan Avenue Elementary School
Plotting Our Path Project
Third grade students in Mrs. Lawson's class and kindergarten students
in Mrs. Chapman's class got a chance to learn about mapping, global
positioning systems (GPS), and geographic information systems (GIS)
in a project designed by their teachers as part of Web World Wonders.
Mrs. Chapman's class mapped the playground, and Mrs. Lawson's class
mapped the school, collecting latitude and longitude coordinates
with a GPS for important locations around the school. Check out
their results below!
