Product Description
This file is the perfect set of task cards for middle school students to practice map and globe skills during the holiday season. The Social Studies skills addressed in the 36 holiday-themed task cards include: use cardinal and intermediate directions, use latitude and longitude to determine location, and use graphic scales to determine distances on a map. The setup is simple—just print out the cards and student response sheet, cut them out, and give them to students. I have included directions for your students to complete the cards in a Gallery Walk-style, but you can also use them like traditional task cards. Students will need atlases to complete the activity, but everything else needed is provided in the file. These cards are an excellent, interactive way for middle school students to review map and globe skills before winter break. Have fun and happy holidays!
