Description

Our Latitude and Longitude lesson plan introduces the students to longitude and latitude and the concepts surrounding them. Most students realize there are lines on most maps, but many do not know why the lines are there or how to use them. This lesson shows students how the lines are necessary for GPS to direct them from one location to another. During this lesson, students are asked to look at a given map and find the latitude and longitude of given points on the map, testing their ability to use the skills taught in this lesson. Students are also asked to answer questions about maps and latitude and longitude and answer true/false questions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson concepts.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define longitude and latitude, distinguish the difference between, and use latitude and longitude to identify locations on a map.
