Looking for a fun way to have students practice their latitude and longitude skills while making a connection to planets? Memorial Day? Halloween? Cars? Football? Colleges? The activities in these 15 latitude and longitude products have students plot the locations of real cities/towns in the USA that are named after a variety of days and events. Students plot the locations by drawing little objects that represent the theme of the product, such as a cute puppy face for the Animals, USA product, or footballs for the Football, USA product.
These are great for early finishers, graphing in math, coordinate mapping practice, or as a fun partner activity for a sub, or on a Friday, or before a break! What I love most about these products is that they are fun for kids to do, it keeps them engaged, and they sort of trick them into practicing their location skills.
