This week in geography: how can we compare Facebook to the Mississippi valley?

Ni hau! That's Mandarin Chinese for "hello."

What city lies at 39N, 116E?
a) Seoul, S. Korea
b) Shanghai, China
c) Beijing, China
d) Denver, Co

This week: grids, coordinates and map projections.

While this is a week on the basics of geography, we will also look ahead to our unit on the US.

- The importance of the Mississippi valley network, a non-digital information and social connection system.

How is Facebook like a modern version of the Mississippi valley?
