Investigation 2: How do paths look from different perspectives?

Extensions and Enrichment

This investigation uses literature to study paths and to help students understand how the world looks from different elevations. Students also identify natural and human-made paths in satellite images. A local or state map is the basis for an activity in which a flashlight beam from different distances demonstrates the possible view at different altitudes. The investigation concludes with an examination of satellite images of three cities. Students identify natural and human-made pathways in the images.
