The Cabin Boy runs into the students and hands you the ship’s radar printout with some coordinates.  Almost out of the breath, the Cabin Boy says, "The Captain wants you to figure out what landmass, feature, or city is at those coordinates."

13.17ºN, 59.56ºW _________________ (landmass)

22.91ºS, 43.20ºW_______________ (city)

58.58ºS, 65.91ºW _______________ (feature)

27.12ºS, 109.37ºW _______________ (landmass)

Plot each of those coordinates on the World Map attached to this assignment. Draw a smooth line that connects the points as the ship sails to each one.  Draw and label the Equator and Prime Medidan on the map.

Satisfied with your navigation abilities, you stand up for a break.  As you look around, you see other small islands, called atolls.
