Fourth graders examine how to use maps to locate major areas of the world, and the major lines of longitude and latitude. They use coordinate to locate and label the continents. Also, they determine what type of weather they could expect at various locations in the world.
In this latitude and longitude activity, students read about the lines of latitude and longitude and study the map of the lines for South Dakota. Students then use the lines of longitude and latitude to answer the questions. Students then use a map of the United States, find where they live on it, and find the lines of latitude and longitude. Students write the latitude first and include the directions of North, South, East, and West.
