Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Locating Examples of Rivers, Lakes and Glaciers on a World Map - Section 4: Deltas, Glaciers and Lakes


Some students had a challenging time trying to transfer the location of the water feature from the map on the computer to the map on on their desk. Even when I placed the map next to the map on the computer they would struggle to find the corresponding landmarks.

Next I showed the same map in a book so that both the map and the book would be in the same position. Students were more successful with making a one to one correspondence with the material on their desk.

When I do this lesson again I will be sure to have printed maps with the key features identified, to  to assist students with labeling their map.
