Because I Say So











{May 29, 2014}   Thing 11: Mapping & Geolocation Tools

Planning a trip somewhere? Wishing you were planning a trip somewhere?  Check out Google Maps. You can take photo tours, explore landmarks and check out neighborhoods.  If you’re planning an actual visit, google maps can help you get a feel for directions and what you will be seeing ahead of time.  There are a lot of features in Google Maps that could be used with students.  You could visit places related to lessons, or have a student create a travel “brochure” and possibly do further research on the destination’s attractions, costs, plan an itinerary, etc., making this as small or as big a project as you’d like!
