Today we visited the "Top of the World" exhibit at the World Trade Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Students had a 360 degree view of the city where they could see as far out as the Cheseapeake Bay to the south and Towson to the north. Each student was asked to locate various geometric shapes they saw throughout the city and draw label the names of those shapes and buildings on their research activity sheet. Students were also asked to estimate the distance to various landmarks like the Key Bridge and Camden Yards. Tomorrow in class we will see how close their estimates were! In addition they also learned distances to various cities around the world and some Baltimore cinema history! Ask your children about it tonight!
