Engage and challenge your students by using My Maps and Google Earth in a variety of ways. Science, Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies lessons can all be enhanced and deepened by using maps. Learn how to use Tour Builder in Google Earth to help students design a virtual tour of areas that they are studying. Students can go from filling in a Google form to integrating the data generated from the Google sheet into My Maps so they can plot places quickly. Adding pictures, text, and links to places on the map is quick and easy. Students love being able to create their own maps, complete with all sorts of added information, and then share them with their fellow students. What a great way to liven up reports, lessons, and have students learn independently.
