In this social studies worksheet, students write answers to 34 questions responding to the film, Lost at Sea: The Search for Longitude. Students respond to questions before, during and after the film.
Learners examine lines of latitude and longitude on a United States map and discuss the reasons why these lines are helpful. They discuss ways that temperatures vary with latitude and discuss clothing that they would wear at specific latitudes.
Seventh graders distinguish between latitude and longitude. In this geography lesson, 7th graders locate specific locations on the Earth using latitude and longitude, calculate distance using latitude and longitude, and discover differences between two locations on the Earth.
Students find latitude and longitude on a map or atlas. They create maps with a cruise route. They practice plotting locations given latitiude and longitude.
If you are navigating to find a terrific lesson on GPS (global positioning system) that incorporates math, geography, and science, then you have finally arrived! This is an ideal STEM lesson in which high schoolers learn the history of GPS, read maps using Google Earth, convert latitude and longitude into minutes and seconds, practice triangulation and trilateration, and more! You will use the included PowerPoint and videos to teach, then turn learners loose to solve real-world problems.
Arm your young learners with the skills to properly review and analyze maps! These worksheets involve using longitude and latitude to locate countries on a map, matching geography terms from a word bank to their proper definitions, and identifying hemispheres and navigation tools.
World heritage sites can be found around the globe. Many of these sites are noted for their importance in representing culture and location. Each activity included in this resource focuses on latitude/longitude, map skills, finding locations with coordinates, and discussing the importance of historic site preservation.
