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.
There are lots more fun geography ideas and resources on my Geography Pinterest Board. Just click on the link below to go to my board.
Have fun with geography!
