What Is Our Global Position? {anchor chart and journal/notebook activity}

Hi, Owlies!  It's Dana from Prepping for the Primary 
Gridiron!  I wanted to share a global position activity 
I did with my kiddos.  I am hoping it can help yours 
just as much as it did mine!

Global position is one of our 1st grade Social 
Studies AKS.  It's always a tricky concept 
because of how abstract it is.

I decided to make something visual to try 
and help them better understand the size 
concepts of each location/position.

We started with this anchor chart:

We labeled it together using a 
PPT we had previously used.

Then it was their turn!  I printed out
the same type of circles (but small enough
for their journals).  They had to glue them
in their journals and then label them.  

Here are some pics of the finished product:

If you teach global position and think
this activity could help your kiddos,
you can snag it for free at my shop!

I hope it helps your kids get a better
understanding of global position!


  1. I teach fourth grade, and my students seem to have a problem understanding this every year. This will be really helpful. Thanks!

    1. You're welcome! That's awesome that you can use it with your 4th graders, Jennifer!
