In 3-205C we have been studying the world around us, using maps and globes.  We learned about the different continents and bodies of water around the world.  We learned some characteristics of each continent by reading articles and jotting facts.  We even learned about the Equator, Prime Meridian, lines of longitude, and lines of latitude.  To conclude these map studies, in small groups, we each made globes.  We used our classroom globes as guides to where exactly the different continents went as well as the Equator and Prime Meridian.
