MAP MANIA

We are learning to think like geographers to research places by noticing features in maps.

1. PICK-A-PLACE

We will be using Google Earth on the IWB. Pick-a-place from our list and zoom in to notice features. Zoom out to notice where our place is in the world. We will use the thinking routine SEE-THINK-WONDER and record our ideas using the app Book Creator.

2. WHERE IN THE WORLD?

Join in our online geography mystery and learn how to write a good blog comment at the same time. Find the latest challenge at the bottom of the list on this page

3. THE WAY HOME

Use Google Maps to locate your school. Zoom in to STREET VIEW. Follow the route you take to get to your home.

If you have time, give instructions to a friend to get to your house. Watch them visit you on Google Maps!

4. EDISONS ON THE MAP

Choose three locations from the list. Use the Edison robots to go on a journey to each of these locations.
