Product Description
All you need are rulers, these easy-to-use data sheets and a United States atlas of individual state maps for New Mexico, Utah, Iowa, and Oklahoma for this lesson!

Whole Class: Use one map to practice measuring distances between cities together. Points to emphasize:
• Shortest distance between two cities is straight line, but not all interstates and roads are straight!
• Check map scales for each state, size of states vary and scale could change

Small Group/Individual: Use remaining three maps to assign the same state map to group, or different state maps to each group member. Group members can trade and re-measure before checking actual distances on a website or app.

Use as a learning center too!
