Students will understand that maps are not accurate depictions of the land and water surface on earth. Many scholars have attempted to create maps with the least amount of distortion or maps that are better suited for traveling using latitude and longitude. Each map that is created has some distortion, which results in a changing of the shape and size of land/continents. Students will understand the vocabulary word projection and the impact projections have on perception of the world around us by the completion of this lesson.
