Learning the Great Lakes and their locations can be difficult. The kids and I came up with a catchy mnemonic to memorize the location of the Great Lakes. First we memorized the names of the Great Lakes (Superior, Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie) and then we used the mnemonic SHO ME (pronounced "show me") to remember their locations. It's worked wonders and the kids have no problems at all remember which lake is which. "Sho me" the Great Lakes!
