Finally! Introducing students to the continents and oceans, maps, mapping, and latitude and longitude in a clear, concise, and easy format!
After my dissatisfaction with using our school's old transparency machines and out of date maps I decided that there had to be an easier way to teach students fundamental mapping skills directly. So I made this Prezi as a way to front load important concepts, terminology, and skills before diving into the more complicated mapping activities.
What will your students know after viewing this Prezi:
- The Continents and Oceans (complete with a pre and post assessment)
- How to read the fundamentals of a map
- How the global grid system works
I have found that after this Prezi my students are ready to work with maps and have a foundation for identifying latitude and longitude. It's a great and easy way to prepare them for using more complex maps and for identifying latitude and longitude!
Note: This contains an editable Prezi if you would like to make changes.
