This Lesson Plan help teach students how to use the lines of latitude and longitude. It takes students step by step in a series of fun activities which allow students to demonstrate their mastery of this skill. This lesson includes:
-a detailed teacher's guide
-a lesson on the hemispheres of the world as well as a quick presentation of what the prime meridian and equator are
-a total of 10 practice sheets with multiple blank worksheets allowing teachers to create their own practice if the student need more
-copies of the maps used so that students can practice outside of class and once again, so teachers can create test or quizzes using the same materials
This lesson plan provides students with imaginary lands to practice their skills, so that when you set them off on real maps (which are usually much more crowded with information) they will have the skills they need to succeed!
