Learning Coordinates and Memory Cards
This activity was created to have the students have a fun way to begin to learn how to read coordinates.
Included in this download is:
* Coordinate sheet with Thanksgiving pictures
* Memory Cards with the same pictures
* Blank Memory Cards to create your own cards
If you like this project, please let us know. There are many projects covering the entire school year and some projects which are cross curricular (Sports, Patriotism, Seasons, Holidays, History, Foreign Language and Science). Lessons begin at 2nd grade and are appropriate for the Elementary School, Middle School and some for High School students. These projects have been used successfully at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.
All projects are copyrighted, so please don’t distribute them to all of your colleagues. Instead direct them to our Store:

Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.
Common Core State Standards
CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).
