Geography and Art for Kids

In yesterday's post, I mentioned a fun book to use to teach kids about GEOGRAPHY. If you missed it, just click HERE to go to yesterday's blog post.

Today I have a suggestion for combining Geography and Art.

Have the kids design their own compass rose showing the Cardinal Directions (North, East, South, and West).

Older children can add in the Intermediate Directions (Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest.)

Also for older children, I have a link for a video about latitude and longitude from the website About.com. This video will help the kids learn how to read latitude and longitude lines.

After watching the video, students could use a paper plate to make their own grid of latitude and longitude lines including the Equator and Prime Meridian.

Just click on the link below.
