Coordinates - Online Game

This awesome game is great for TEACHING latitude and longitude and world geography. In Coordinates, students learn latitude and longitude while learning the locations and names of the world’s nations. First, students are prompted to find the latitude coordinate. Once the latitude coordinate is found, the game locks the latitude position and the longitude lines animate into the map. Finally, students are prompted to find a point of longitude. If the clicked coordinates are close enough to the actual coordinates that they occur in the same nation, the student will have the opportunity to “guess” the name of the nation. If correct, students earn the flag of the nation that appears in the flags panel. Students also have 100 “coordinate points” to work with. If the actual coordinate is 95 degrees west and the student chooses 90 degrees, he or she will lose five coordinate points reducing the total, for example, to 95. The game ends when the student has no coordinate points left.
