still struggle in 6th

Clip to ScrapBook #3

This is something I see students struggling with when they come to me as sixth graders.
It is such an abstract concept that young ones can really struggle with it.
The circle idea may help with the concept, but applying it may still be a challenge for some.
Once they are older, and are more aware of their surroundings - they seem to grasp easier by making it relevant to their own town/city, state, country, continent and so on.
Sometimes the young don't even realize what state they are in.
Shoot, I still have 6th graders who don't know their address at the start of the year. Scary!
Let me know if you come up with something good that works!
