Direct Me!
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     
Which way, any way, that way, no way,
Passage way, alley way, breeze way, one way,
Which way?

 
2     Knowing your way is very important. If we did not know direction, finding our way would be hard. Our planet has points, lines, and areas. Right now you are sitting at your desk reading this article. You are located at a certain point in your classroom. Suppose you want to sharpen your pencil? You can see the sharpener on the wall. So, you get up and walk along a path to the sharpener. You have just traveled along a line. A line is a path between two or more points. You have also traveled in a certain direction. That direction was toward the sharpener. The sharpener is the other point.
 
3     Now suppose your desk is a part of a group. You and the students in the group are part of an area. So imagine our planet. Your house is at a point on Earth. You travel along a line to get to another point, your school. Finally your school is in an area of your town called a neighborhood. Now you see why we need direction. We need to find all of the points, lines, and areas on Earth.
