Making Memories

Thursday

Maths

Sometimes, on maps, you see coordinates. These are two numbers in brackets that help pin point a place on the map e.g. (2,3). They are often seen when used in treasure maps. 

 

Task:

Draw an imaginary planet. You can add volcanoes, deserts, lakes in fact anything you can imagine. If you are a Star Wars fan, why not base it on Tatooine or Hoth. Then, add a coordinate grid over the top. After that, hide gem stones or important items on the map and plot a journey to find them using coordinates. Give the coordinates to someone else and see if they can find the important items.

 

This video will give you ideas for drawing a map.
