Scoot for Absolute and Relative Map Locations
This social studies activity contains two Scoot map activities to help your students practice finding absolute and relative locations on a United States map. Absolute locations use lines of latitude and longitude to locate a state; relative locations tell where a state is located relative to someplace else. Both these activities will help your students develop map reading skills as they become more familiar with the map of the United States. Each Scoot game has 24 question cards.

Scoot is a fun, fast-paced classroom game that students love to play! It’s perfect for an end-of-unit review, a rainy-day recess, or even just to get the wiggles out!
To play, put a Scoot question on each student’s desk, along with a number card. Students stand at their desks, record the answer to the question on their recording sheet and at the signal of “Scoot!” they rotate to the next desk to answer the new question.
Complete directions for playing Scoot are included.
These questions cards can also be used as task cards in centers for independent or small group work.
