A few weeks ago, the 2nd grade teachers came to me asking for help digitizing their "Me on the Map" project. This project was an established project for our 2nd grade. The teachers liked this project because it compacted several of the 2nd grade required essential learnings for social studies. (SS.220.127.116.11.4 - Use maps, photos or other geographic tools to answer basic questions about where people are located)
Together we decided to give students an opportunity to create their "Me on the Map" project in Google Tour Builder. Students were able to create a slideshow complete with pins of their continent, country, state, county, city and home address. For each slide and pin on the Google Map, they could add images and facts to round out their slideshow. Their final presentations were impressive! They were able to share their presentations with their teacher & family using the Google share feature.
