Map Skills
One School Explores

"We had a great time using our mini globes to find places around the world that have similar temperatures to Iowa this week. First we located Iowa, then we followed the dark green temperature bands circled other countries on the map. Then we looked for these countries on the globe to reveal their names."
"We found Iraq, Japan, Southern Alaska, and Greenland are all in the low 40s this week. The kids also used the word bank provided to make other observations about this winter weather around the globe." -Anisel Homeschool, Pella, Iowa
