Product Description
Looking for a fun way to have students practice their latitude and longitude skills while connecting to the names from Greek Mythology? This activity has students plot the locations of 25 cities/towns in the USA by using Zeus' lightning bolt as a location marker.

Included in this activity are the coordinates, map, and each of the 25 cities with a name from Greek Mythology.

Some of the names included are:
Troy, New York
Athens, Indiana
Achilles, Virginia
Muse, Pennsylvania
Penelope, Texas
...and many more!

An answer key is provided with the locations of the coordinates. You could have a class competition, a partner activity, or whatever you think of to keep your students learning and engaged!

Great for a Social Studies/English Connection!
