This is an introductory lesson to Latitude and Longitude. The lesson includes 3 centers or 3 days worth of whole group lessons.
The package includes:
Center 1 - Direct instruction powerpoint that defines Latitude and Longitude for students. It includes a cloze activity to be used as the information is presented.
Center 2 - Students are provided with a set of cards that have coordinates. Students use table top maps (not included) to identify the country at the given coordinates. A recording sheet is included along with the answer key.
Center 3 - Students use Google Earth to identify the attractions at each of the given coordinates. (One of the sets is my school, you will want to change that to reflect something familiar to your students.)
