Where in the World is South Carolina?

Challenge your learners to wrap graph paper around a ping pong ball to represent the latitude and longitude of the earth. It just can't be done! But it's a great introduction to latitude and longitude. It can be looked at in two-dimensional form like looking at a map. This can be related to the Cartesian coordinate plane. It can also be looked at in three-dimensional form like on a globe. A great hands-on activity to learn about latitude and longitude.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
