  • Our focus has been on LOCATION, one of the five themes of geography. Today, using relative location (references of landmarks, direction, distance, and time), student partners had to write directions to a specific Conestoga school location from our classroom. Then using their written directions, the class named the location. The students found out it is harder than they thought it would be to explain relative location;)
