Coordinates on our map grid, a hands-on activity to help kids remember the important lines on the globe.
This activity helps students to learn longitude and latitude. By completing a hands on activity students are more likely to remember what they have learned.
UNIT 1: longitude and latitude This mapping activity can help teach students about latitude, longitude, coordinates etc. They can color coordinate their map with different colors to show what each part is trying to represent. This will be useful for them to have because they can then create a "Key" to write down to show what color goes with which feature of the map. They can tape this into their social studies journals so they can use it as a future reference when studying different maps.
Week 2: geography: Mapping activity - teaching about coordinates, longitude, latitude, etc.
This is a world map activity that gives students the opportunity to work with longitude and latitude lines.

Take a Stand....what a great writing (and social studies) activity! Love this... would do it without it being the I AM poem, but just the opinion writing on the sign.
A simple persuasive writing idea!
Love this twist on the "I am...." poem. Would be great for Black History Month, persuasive writing, so many ideas! "Protestors" taking a stand for a cause. Their signs are "I am " poems written in the point of view of people who are passionate about a cause.
"Protestors" taking a stand for a cause. Their signs are "I am " poems written in the point of view of people who are passionate about a cause during the Industrial Revolution. Students could write as a women factory worker. This is also a good idea for incorporating language arts into my unit.
