Using longitude and latitude

to locate volcanoes.

In this activity, we look at locating famous world volcanoes on a world map using their latitude and longitude co-ordinates. 18 famous volcanoes are listed and the map is large to allow lots of space to locate the volcanoes. We recommend using a pencil for the first few volcanoes so that you can easily correct mistakes. Also printing it in A3 makes the activity easier.
