Activity 5 - Longest Place Words

Have your students send a postcard to a friend from one of these places; better yet, have them try pronouncing them! Locating the longest world place names is a great typing and geography project. Have students search out locations, identify them, and build a Custom Lesson. Start with these entries from New Zealand, Wales, and Massachusetts.
