Product Description
This lesson begins with going over how Greek scientists made the discovery that the Earth was a sphere. It was very challenging to accurately map the Earth so scientists today use a grid system. Scientists can also make map projections using different techniques, but each technique has its own drawback. The worksheet that is included goes along with the power point presentation to keep students engaged. This lesson is designed for late elementary through intermediate grades.
