First find your house (by typing in your postcode) then try to answer these questions. Can you use the line tool and the measuring tool to find out: 1. How far is it from your house to the coast? 2. How far is it from your house to the nearest supermarket? 3. How far is it from your house to Buckingham Palace? 4. How far is it from your house to the Eiffel Tower in France? 5. How far is it from your house to The Isle of Skye? See what else you can find out using the line tool! Have fun!
