Looking for a fun way to have students practice their latitude and longitude skills while making a connection to the planets? This activity has students plot the locations of 25 real cities/towns in the USA that are named after a planet by drawing a little Saturn planet as a location marker.
Included in this activity are the coordinates, map, and the 25 cities named after one of the planets (I included Pluto because I felt bad for it being bumped off the list).
Some of the names included are:
...and many more!
An answer key is provided with the locations of the coordinates. You could have a class competition, a partner activity, or whatever you think of to keep your students learning and engaged!
Great for a Social Studies/Science Connection!
