Geometry and Spatial Sense

This unit asks students to look at building models and determine what they would like from the top, right, left, front and back. Google Earth shows them a building from the top and from the sides so that they can see real-life examples of the activities that they will be doing.

The video also describes topographic maps, which are maps that show the elevation of a land mass.
