One of the trickiest things for me to teach (and to learn!) about Geography is keeping things straight between latitude and longitude. Because of that difficulty, I’ve decided to create another “The Best…” list. You might also be interested in The Best Websites For Learning & Teaching Geography.
Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Teaching About Latitude & Longitude (that are, of course, accessible to English Language Learners). These are not listed in any order of preference:
Here’s a free Brainpop movie on the topic.
Here’s a game to test and practice understanding of the concept.
And here’s another simple game.
Soft Schools Latitude and Longitude
World: Latitudes and Longitudes – Map Quiz Game
Lines of Latitude and Longitude
Here’s a game from Purpose Games.
As always, feedback and additional suggestions are welcome.
If you found this post useful, you might want to look at previous “The Best…” lists and also consider subscribing to this blog for free.
Thanks so much for the fun sites. I had fun playing them. I am a grade 5 teacher trying to get some ideas for the coming year. This was helpful information. All the best to you!!!
this is really helpful and i think people should use it and learn the different things that r happing all around the world and no how far a country is and how they are graphed
This website works really well! it helped so much! We had to play games on this website for the summer STEM program, and it was so much fun!
Thank you for helping me find games that reinforces learning such concepts as Longitudes and latitudes
THIS WEBSITE REALLY HELPED
I enjoyed looking at your links. I am carrying out a class room research on developing reading and locating places on world physical map with reference to latitude and longitude.
