LATITUDE & LONGITUDE - Three sets of task cards to help students practice finding locations with a set of latitude and longitude coordinates. Using gnomes as a theme (thinking of gnomes who have traveled the world and sent home notes) each task card is written like a postcard.
Set 1 - students are given a set of coordinates and must locate the world capital city. (12 cards)
Set 2 - students are given a world capital city and must figure out the latitude and longitude of the city. (12 cards)
Set 3 - Includes an American and Canadian version - students are given a state or province and must determine both the capital and the city's latitude and longitude. (US version - 12 cards) (Canadian version - 14 cards - includes all provinces, territories and Ottawa)
Includes student data sheets, answer keys and more! 50 task cards total!
*Please note - Although maps are included, this activity works best using a standard school atlas - the larger pages, use of color and clear text are much more helpful than a photocopied world map.
**Please note this is also part of my Latitude and Longitude Bundle!
