Classroom Considerations

  • While there are a few paragraphs describing how to provide direct instruction on longitude and latitude, you may want to include other resource types (videos, worksheets, etc.) to support your lesson before beginning this activity
Pros

  • Well-written set of clues
  • Includes answer key
Cons

  • The resource does not include a form for groups to record their answers during the activity, though it would be easy to design a simple worksheet
