MAP READING SKILLS
Reproducible activity book
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Latitude and longitude activities, plenty of them, enough to make your students experts instead of just barely familiar with the concept, are supplemented by ten activities introducing how GPS works.
A teacher-led inquiry lesson kicks off the curriculum, and then 29 lessons address such topics as rectangular coordinate systems, great circles, the hemispheres, longitude and time zones, converting degrees of latitude and longitude to miles and kilometers, and using the sun to determine latitude. An introductory section refreshes general map-reading skills.
