Maps! March 2001 Contest

Map with longitude & latitude - Atlantic Canada

Create a class project around the theme of "maps".

Maps may be modern or historic, traditional, computer generated, or hand-drawn! They may show latitude and longitude, or ancient notations. They may be as large as a continent, or as small as a community.

You decide! Share your rationale... share your work!
