Four-figure grid references : Four-figure grid references Four-figure grid references (1) : Four-figure grid references (1) Four-figures grid references are used to identify and locate particular squares on a map. To create four-figure grid references you use the grid lines on a map 21 22 23 24 25 26 The vertical lines on the grid are called EASTINGS and they increase in value as you move EASTwards. 39 38 35 36 37 The horizontal lines on the grid are called NORTHINGS and they increase in value as you move NORTHwards.

Eastings number first Northings number second Click me Next slide… Four-figure grid references (3) : Four-figure grid references (3) 21 22 23 24 25 26 39 38 35 36 37 Lets have a look at a couple of other examples. You work out the answer before it appears! First, a RED SQUARE The EASTING is: 22 The NORTHING is: 36 The four-figure grid reference is: 2236 Click me Click for next slide… Four-figure grid references (4) : Four-figure grid references (4) 21 22 23 24 25 26 39 38 35 36 37 This time, a BLUE SQUARE The EASTING is: 24 The NORTHING is: 35 The four-figure grid reference is: 2435 Click me Hope you got it right. Time now for a little test. Final chance to practice….. Click for next slide… Four-figure grid references : Four-figure grid references 21 22 23 24 25 26 39 38 35 36 37 A Time now for a little test. TEN squares are going to be highlighted and you have TEN seconds to write down the grid reference for each square. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 A CLICK to start.....
