Exploring the Physical Geography of the Pacific NW: Finding Latitude and Longitude on the Ground

You may have noticed but on many maps there are lines and borders on them that you can’t see or find when you are at these locations on the ground. While true in the visible sense, if you were to go to court in a legal case to find the border of someone’s property or you wanted to find the prime meridian, there are tools to help you find these invisible lines. You can use your GPS to find one of the more used lines that exist on maps but aren’t seen on the ground. These are the lines of latitude and longitude. These lines will be particularly evident if you have several people each with their own GPS unit.

 

Exploring the Physical Geography of the Pacific NW: Hide and Seek

This is an easy quick activity to brush up on finding points someone else has already saved or points you had saved before. A deck of cards is a nice tool but any numbered sheets of paper, or other unique trinkets would work as well.

Many easy variations could include the teacher going through an interpretive walk around your school grounds and uploading saved points to a computer using the DNRGarmin free tool. (You will need the download cable to do this.) Then you can upload the points back to the rest of the GPS units before sending your class out with a worksheet of activity descriptions of what to do at each of the sites you have chosen.

Exploring Literature with Cool Geography Tools

Join us as we explore the world of literature with our compass set on cool tools. We’ll explore book journeys, author studies, enhancing context and setting as well as share other ways to empower elementary, middle and high school reading and writing instruction with geospatial technology tools. With just an online connection we’ll discover no software and free software solutions to include mapping in your literary pursuits.
