In this activity about cartography, learners work in teams to create two different map projections: a planar (or polar) and a cylindrical (or Mercator) projection. Learners construct an imaginary polar continent from a soda bottle and shine a flashlight directly above it to make a projection. They trace this projection onto a piece of paper to create the planar projection. They then use another portion of the bottle to create the cylindrical projection. This activity will help learners understand the challenges of creating maps of the Earth.
