Latitude and Longitude. Here's a way for your students to get even better at their latitude and longitude skills! I've combined all three of my "Where's the Buried Treasure?"
products into one bundle! Included are Where's the Buried Treasure 1?
, Where's the Buried Treasure 2?
, and Where's the Buried Treasure 3?
That's 30 treasure hunts for your students to find using latitude and longitude!
Here's how it works - included in this bundle are 30 latitude and longitude treasure hunts 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 and that will spell out the country where the buried treasure is located. Students can use an atlas or a world map to fine-tune their skills during these activities.
One way that is fun for students is when each student gets the same treasure hunt and has a pen or pencil in their 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. The first one (or the first two, three, four, or five) to identify all of the countries correctly, thus spelling out the country where the treasure is located, wins a prize from you. You could also assign one of the treasure hunts 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 things like, "I think my family came from Poland. Now I know where it is!" Like I said, it tricks them into learning and tricks them into fine-tuning their coordinate skills.
