Product Description
Absolute and relative location are two basic, important geography tools that all students must master.

While there are many available assignments to teach these concepts to elementary school and middle school/junior high school students, here's one with a twist! Students will locate all 30 NBA teams using absolute and relative location.

Absolute location, of course, requires students to use latitude and longitude to give their answers. Relative location requires cardinal directions (north, south, east, west) and intermediate directions (northeast, northwest, southeast, southwest).

This would be an effective assignment as the NBA season opens its latest season.

Included, please find the assignment with chart for record-keeping, an answer key, a blank map, a political USA/Canada map, and an idea for an extension assignment.

Plus, how about this idea for an educational technology twist? If you have Google Earth installed on your classroom computer(s), you can visit each and every NBA arena! Simply, download the KML file included in this packet and the file should load automatically into Google Earth. Take your students on a virtual tour today. Thank you!
