Our Middle School has begun its micronation project. Mapping their “nation” is one aspect of this collaborative project. Taking the theme of mapping school-wide, we started our study by discussing various types of maps and what important features are on a map. We then took a closer look at topographic maps. Fortunately, we have a topographic survey map of the Davidson Green School property, so students could read the map and see its corresponding land feature. Students also learned how to use a compass to find north and the difference between magnetic north and true north.
