This resource has many learning opportunities available. It can be a teaching experience around mapping and using longitude and latitude coordinates. It can be a math and/or geometry supplement to a U.S. Revolution study. You may even be able to integrate it into a Presidents' Day study.
It was created initially to combine the math concepts of position and direction within a study on the topic of war.
Students will need access to an atlas or (more preferably) an online map app, such as Google Maps. They may also need access to reference material (online or offline) on major battles of the U.S. Revolution.
It may be useful (but not necessary) for students to have some understanding of longitude and latitude prior to this activity.
Students are provided with the recording sheet and an information card that contains information on four major battles that took place during the U.S. Revolution, the dates of the battles and the State they occurred in.
Using the information cards and the coordinates on the recording sheet students then work out which battle took place in which State and when.
This resource includes;
- Recording sheet
- A Sheet of information cards
- An answer sheet
