PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This awesome SMART Notebook file is great for teaching latitude and longitude to your students. It is very interactive and contains a variety of activities to make the lesson stick in your students' brains. It begins with a quick review of the continents and oceans and the cardinal and intermediate directions. Then, an example is given for why we need latitude and longitude in the first place. Click and reveal notes, pull tabs, maps, and buttons are all utilized to teach students about the definitions of latitude and longitude, the major lines, and some easy ways to remember them. There is a review activity that asks students to place the major lines on a globe diagram. A follow-up activity that asks students to sketch a world map is suggested, but of course not required. A sorting activity is used to reinforce which lines are latitude/longitude, what direction they go, and what they measure. Finally, students put their new knowledge to work by practicing using latitude and longitude on the SMART board. Coordinates of a major tourist attraction are given, and students move a magnifying glass to find where the attraction is located based on the coordinates. If a student is right, a white dot will appear. This lesson can be used for a variety of ages depending on how much experience your students have with the concepts of latitude and longitude. I think this is a great lesson and I hope you'll think so too.
