Year 9 - Southampton to Cape Town

The final rotation group in Year 9 have been designing a route from Southampton to Cape Town. While the task sounds simple there are a few parameters to design within and to make the task challenging. The Year is 1937 and the students could only land in allied nations. They were using a flying boat and therefore they had land their planes on water. The students were also given a maximum distance before they had to refuel and they could only fly in daylight hours. The students recorded their route using the online mapping tool ArcGIS and then recorded their reasoning why they chose to stop in certain places as a story map journal. Examples can be found below:
