Long Branch Elementary, April 15

Thanks to Steve Morse for his wonderful lat/long finder! Use it to find the angular distance from Long Branch to your own home, to other schools we have visited, or to anywhere on earth! Or use it with an atlas to find the antipode to Long Branch or any other place.

While in Washington, DC to attend the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG), members of the EarthView team were pleased to make their first visit to a school outside of Massachusetts.

Long Branch Elementary is located in Arlington, Virginia, directly across the Potomac River from the District of Columbia. Students and teachers at Long Branch showed a lot of enthusiasm for geography!

Long Branch students with follow-up questions are invited to post comments below.
