Unveiling "Grid References" Worksheet

"Grid References" is an interactive and educational worksheet that introduces students to the concept of coordinates and grid referencing. With a grid featuring numbers along the left side and letters along the bottom, students are tasked with identifying specific shapes within the grid and determining their coordinates.


How to Use the Worksheet

  • Download and Print: Click the button below to download the worksheet. Print out multiple copies to provide

       ample practice opportunities for your students.

  • Introduction to Coordinates: Begin by introducing students to the concept of coordinates and grid referencing. Explain how the grid is organized, with numbers representing rows and letters representing columns.

  • Exploring the Grid: Students examine the grid filled with various shapes, including stars, squares, circles, and more. Each shape corresponds to a specific coordinate within the grid.

  • Finding Coordinates: At the bottom of the worksheet, students encounter a duplicate shape alongside a space to write its coordinates. Using their grid skills, students locate the shape within the grid and determine its row and column coordinates.

  • Writing Coordinates: Once students have identified the shape's position within the grid, they write down its coordinates using the format of a letter representing the column and a number representing the row. For example, if the shape is located at the intersection of column H and row 5, the coordinates would be written as H5.

  • Practice and Reinforcement: Encourage students to work through multiple examples, gradually increasing the complexity of the shapes and coordinates. Provide support and guidance as needed to ensure understanding.


Why Choose "Grid References" Worksheet
