Latitude and longitude are used to find coordinates of states within the United States of America in this geography resource. This printable resource includes some basic directions on how latitude and longitude are used and determined and then has students practice using latitude and longitude to locate a specific state within the United States on two different worksheets.
Students are given the latitude and longitude and must determine the state those coordinates lie within. A couple sample problems are given and then twenty problems are provided for independent or group practice. This does not include a map of the United States, but it does include an answer key and black-line master.
Once students have practiced identifying states this way, the class can then play bingo with the enclosed bingo game using state latitude and longitudes. The students fill out a bingo sheet (included) with any of the fifty states and the teacher calls out a latitude and longitude using the enclosed 50 calling cards. Students use a map to determine the state that has been called and cross it off their sheet. When a bingo has been reached the teacher can easily determine if they are right as the calling cards have both the coordinates and the states listed right on them.
