    message in a bottle
    By Jennie

    One activity I use to interest kids in learning latitude and longitude is "message in a bottle." Once I teach the skill, I write down latitude and longitude on a piece of paper and stick it into a bottle. I tell them that the bottle has washed to shore and that there's a map with buried treasure if only they find the right latitude and longitude. They enjoy this activity. You can include an old-looking map, if your want to.
