Longitude and Latitude: Harmony of the Spheros

Lesson Plan Content
In this giant map activity, student groups compete by finding locations using latitude and longitude and directing small round robots called Spheros to such locations on the Arizona map. Students then use a paper map of Arizona counties to locate the same locations. Students then select one of the Arizona counties to gather Fun Facts and create a short blog.
