This activity is ideal for many scenarios! You can use it as an introduction to Google Earth for elementary school students, as a Social Studies center in the regular classroom, or as an engaging, no prep assignment that your substitute teachers can use!
After watching a custom video tailored for this specific activity, students will locate their home and nine other famous landmarks worldwide. They will record the latitude and longitude of each place and answer one or two questions pertaining to that location.
Not sure if your students understand the concepts of latitude, longitude and absolute locations? No problem! I've include links to two short entertaining videos hosted on Safeshare.tv to refresh and reinforce those concepts. Also included is a mystery word puzzle and links to online Social Studies/Mapping games to keep your early finishers busy!
Included in this product are:
--Detailed lesson plan;
--Links to three videos hosted on Safeshare.tv (no worries about advertising or inappropriate content that you might see on YouTube!);
--Student Activity Sheet;
--Mystery Word Puzzle and answer key;
--Links to online computer games.
