So sorry for being totally out there and not posting in practically forever. It's been CRAZY. Anyway, I just wanted to share an awesome FREE PRINTABLE from Scholastic. It can be found here at http://teacher.scholastic.com/lessonrepro/reproducibles/profbooks/MessageinBottle.pdf You can use it to teach Latitude/Longitude in a fun and new way where they work to save the shipwrecked islands! TOTAL LOVE since everything you need is right there!!! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it! I worried it was too "babyish" for 6th grade and they loved it! A modification I made was to have students just "X" the islands they landed on instead of using coins.
