Locating the world’s biggest earthquakes using latitude & longitude

This lesson is designed for KS2 students. It can be taught as a stand alone lesson but is also available as part of two wider units which are available on Teach It Forward:

N.B. Ideally children have a grounding in latitude and longitude prior to this lesson. The unit Understanding Latitude & Longitude is an ideal introduction to the topic.

First the presentation introduces students to latitude and longitude and goes through how to find the coordinates of a point step-by-step. It then asks them to find the latitude and longitude of several world capital cities.

The activity challenges students to locate the world’s biggest earthquakes using their latitude and longitude. It is differentiated three ways:

Easier – Students locate 12 earthquakes using latitude and longitude.
Medium – Students locate 15 earthquakes using latitude and longitude.
Harder – Students locate 18 earthquakes using latitude and longitude.
