Powerpoint with "Map Basics"
Introduces students to:
-The for hemispheres
-Coordinates (with provided coordinates for student practice)
-Lines of Latitude
-Lines of Longitude
-Elements of a Map (key, compass rose, title...etc)
-Types of Maps: Political, physical, and special purpose
I use this with my 7th grade Eastern Hemisphere class to introduce students to the basic skills and vocabulary needed to effectively use a map. We build on these skills throughout the year. I have students take Cornell Notes on a template with this PowerPoint.
