Students research the climate patterns of various locations and make predictions based on their findings. They determine the importance of latitude and longitude in weather and climate. Students create graphs displaying their collected data.
Young scholars participate in a GPS activity and answer questions about Canada. In this Canada lesson plan, students identify location by using a GPS Unit and latitude and longitude. Young scholars find an Inuksuk (station) and a complete worksheet.
Students explore marine life by conducting a rubber duck experiment. In this water currents lesson, students practice identifying latitude and longitude coordinates on a map and define the currents of major oceans. Students discuss the impact of plastic debris on our oceans and utilize a rubber duck, plastic pieces and a water pan to conduct an ocean litter experiment.
Students examine how climate affects lifestyle, clothing choices, food, and water sources. They explore climatic regions such as tropical, desert, coastal, and alpine situations. They look at the longitude and latitude, land features and weather conditions in relation to how engineers use this type of information.
Students create and analyze graphs using archived atmospheric data to compare the ozone levels of selected regions around the world. They locate and identify geographical regions using latitude and longitude. Students graph archived ozone data from the Live Access Server
Tenth graders investigate the Carbon Monoxide level at a fixed latitude to determine if there is a relationship to population density. They download data sets and generate a graph, and find locations using the Earth's coordinate system. Students determine a link between human activity and Carbon Monoxide level.
Students develop an understanding of absolute and relative location. In this geography lesson, students examine their location in the world after studying vocabulary which includes the words latitude, longitude, relative and absolute location. They use assigned web site to find information to make a flip-book that answers questions about their location in the world.
High schoolers examine how Earth's rotation causes daily cycles in solar energy using a microset of satellite data to investigate the Earth's daily radiation budget and locating map locations using latitude and longitude coordinates.
Students plot the migration paths of birds using latitude and longitude data from a table.
Tenth graders investigate the carbon monoxide level at a fixed latitude. They determine if there is a relationship to population density. They download data sets and generate a graph. They determine a link between human activity and Carbon Monoxide levels. They develop possible solutions to reducing Carbon Monoxide levels.
Students observe a demonstration of how melting snow and ice can contribute to mudflows. They then observea list of continents with the number of snow and ice covered mountains on each continent and discuss. They then label a group of volcanoes on a blank map and plot a volcano and its snowline including its approximate latitude.
Explore the major features of a globe using a globe and a variety of media tools to identify and label continents, oceans, poles, the equator, and lines of longitude and latitude. Many geography sources are cited.
Students identify why the Hopi tribe practiced running as it relates to health, delivering messages, defeating other tribes, and for ceremonial events. In this social studies activity, students use maps to identify latitude and longitude then locate regional places the Hopi would run. Students participate in a running activity with their physical education teacher.
Students examine how Christopher Columbus determined his latitude.
Students locate objects using a Global Positioning System. In this global geography lesson, students explore latitude and longitude using a GPS in order to locate objects.
Students study cloud data and weather maps to explore cloud activity. In this cloud data lesson students locate latitude and longitude coordinates and determine cloud cover percentages.
Students use the World Wide Web to access additional information needed to complete a set of questions. They demonstrate an understanding of latitude and longitude by interpreting a lunar map.
High schoolers apply map reading skills by locating places through the use of latitude and longitude.
Students compare apparent and actual shape of Earth, calculate circumference to arrange planets in order by size, locate specific position on map or globe using coordinates, and describe relationship between altitude of Polaris and person's latitude in Northern Hemisphere.
Eighth graders explain the relationship between the position of the sun, a city's latitude and shadow length. Ratio's, geometry, and algebra are used to determine the shadow lengths and building heights. A sun angle (altitude) charts to create and compare skyscraper shadows for four North American cities.
