Greg went to the Museum of Transportation to see the different types of transportation used today. He was given a map to help him find his way around. Let’s see if you can help Greg and his family plan their visit to the museum.
To be able to help Greg use his map you have to first be able to locate points on a grid.
A
grid
is a type of map that is divided into equally spaced squares. Learning about grids will help you locate places on a map.

An
ordered pair
is a pair of numbers that name a point on a grid. They are written in parentheses.
(2,1) shows that the globe is located at the number 2 across and the number 1 up the grid.

Look at the grid and decide what letter is at each ordered pair. Type in the correct letter.

Now let’s help Greg find his way around the Museum of Transportation.

Next to the ordered pairs type in the correct answer. Use these words
 train, plane, truck, car, boat.

Get a sheet of graph paper from your teacher. Make a grid with 5 numbers going each way on the paper. Use the ordered pair numbers to locate places on the grid. After you have all of the points marked with a dot, connect all points with a line. What shape did you draw?
