Grade Level:
Middle School: Sixth Grade through Eighth Grade


Explain to the students that early travelers on the Natchez Trace may have needed to make their own maps. Geographers use tools like maps, globes, and compasses to gather and analyze data. On this field trip, the class will work together to create their own map using a compass. 

***Teachers will need to bring compasses for the class.
