Battleship! Just when you thought it was safe.... Take advantage of the popular movie out in DVD and get your students to practice using coordinates just as the heros must in the movie. A whole new approach for the kids to use -instead of calling out B2 or D5, they need to use longitude and latitude.
FREE - Google Earth Latitude and Longitude: U.S. Capitals worksheet. I use this with my sixth grade students when we learn about latitude and longitude. This worksheet has 15 sets of latitude and longitude coordinates. Students are to find the capital city located at each set of coordinates using Google Earth.
Worksheets: Latitude and Longitude of Cities: This would be cool to recreate this worksheet of just Texas and find the longitude and latitude of all of the major cities in Texas. I would use this as an assessment to see if they understand this concept.
