This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 1, Grade 7. In this activity, students work with the speed and a map with scale to find the amount of time a trip will take. The main strategy to expect is to measure the distance between the two locations on the map and use the scale to convert this to the distance between the actual cities. Then students can calculate how long it will take at 15 mph.
