Where's the Buried Treasure? Bundle of 30 Latitude and Longitude Treasure Hunts!
Included in this product you are currently viewing are 10 latitude and longitude activities where students are given a set of coordinates and each coordinate will lead them to a country. Once they find all the countries they take the first letter of each country they found in order and that will spell out the country where the buried treasure is located. Works like a charm!

Page 13-22: Answers for Buried Treasures 1 through 10
There are a variety of ways to go about this activity such as a friendly daily contest. Each student gets Buried Treasure #1 for example, has a pen or pencil in hand and an atlas on their desk. When you say, "3...2...1...GO!" they begin hunting for the treasure using their latitude and longitude skills through their atlas. The first one to identify all of the countries correctly, thus spelling out the country where the treasure is located and identifying that country with an "X" wins a prize from you.
You could also assign these as a nightly homework assignment for students to practice on their own time or have students work in groups so they can help each other practice their skills with one person finding the latitude and the other finding the longitude.
What I like most about this activity is when I hear students say, "Oh...so that's where Egypt is!" Like I said, it tricks them into learning and tricks them into fine-tuning their coordinate skills.
