Students will complete several activities in which they will describe, draw, examine and explore paths. Activities range from describing, drawing and exploring local paths (roads/sidewalks to school, hiking trails, trails in the local school environment, etc.) to comparing and contrasting larger-scale paths (streets, bridges, runways, rivers) on maps and in satellite images of three major world cities. NASA satellite images of Boston, Paris and Houston are included in the lesson. This investigation also introduces students to the need for "ground truthing." The URL opens to the investigation directory, with links to teacher and student materials, lesson extensions, resources, teaching tips, and assessment strategies. The teacher's guide will begin with a two-page module overview and list of all standards addressed. This is Investigation 1 of four found in the Grades K-4 Module 4 of Mission Geography. The Mission Geography curriculum integrates data and images from NASA missions with the National Geography Standards. Each of the four investigations in Module 4, while related, can be done independently.
