Four- and six-figure grid references

It is important to be able to locate places using four- and six-figure grid references. A four-figure grid reference will locate a particular square on the map. A six-figure grid reference will pinpoint a location such as a school, bridge or hospital.

Hint: Remember to give the Easting first and then the Northing. Always go from the bottom left corner of the square. For example, the four-figure grid reference for the heart is 00 03.

Give the four-figure grid reference of the following symbols.

  1. Square: .........................................................................................................
  2. Cloud:.........................................................................................................
  3. Circle:.........................................................................................................
  4. Cross:.........................................................................................................
  5. Moon:.........................................................................................................

Remember to always go from the bottom left-hand corner of the square when giving a grid reference. Use the middle of the symbol as your starting point.

This is a brilliant resource. I am using it in conjunction with the FSC virtual fieldwork week. Students will watch the live virtual fieldwork sessions then answer questions in the workbook. The PPT presentations will provide extra information. I will then go over these when more normal lessons resume.
