Google Maps in the Classroom

Written by admin. Posted in Technology

Here is an example of an Elementary School teacher using Google Maps  in their classroom to bring to life Pedro’s Journal, a classroom lit study. Imagine adding this to your blog so your students can continue the conversation at home with their parents or simply access the information from home to foster curiosity and exploration.

Some notes:

  • This map was found by a simple Google search “Google maps education
  • With merely a copy/paste, it was added to this post (i.e. you can do the same!)
  • While you can create your own Google Map, there is a lot of content already out there ready for you to discover
