Critically about Geography
Bird Flies or as a Submarine Dives…
to go from one place to another, you have to know where you
want to go. One way to know is by looking at a map. Getting
to where you want to go isn't always as easy as drawing a straight
line across a map. Imagine if there was a mountain in between
where you are and where you want to be. Unless there's a tunnel
through the mountain, you're going to have to go over it or
around it. If you're flying an airplane, going over the mountain
is no problem. If you're walking, you'll probably want to go
around the mountain.
1. Look at
this map. What are some of the ways you can get from point A
to point B? How would you give directions to someone flying
a plane, driving a car, or in a submarine? How far is it from
point A to point B in an airplane, a car, or a submarine?
2. If lots
of people travel back and forth between the two points, what
would be a way to make it easier for them to travel?
