Spatial Sense

Children learn about how map projection is a method that involves representing our round Earth onto a flat piece of paper. They explored the different approaches to map projection and how each one created a slightly different end result. Children learn about the difficulties associated with map projection by comparing many of the more recognisable map projections, focusing particular attention on the similarities and differences between the Mercator and the Peters projections. This gave children the opportunity to question their assumptions about the sizes of countries and helped us to see that there are different ways to view the world.
