Mapping Skills


As part of our topic on South America, we learned the countries of South America and using Atlases, were able to locate the countries and their capital cities. We also were able to locate the Amazon River, the Amazon Rainforest, the Andes (being the world's longest mountain range) and the Equator.


Furthermore, we learned latitude and longitude and were able to find and locate the latitude and longitude co-ordinates of many countries.
