Google My Maps

Google Maps offers students and teacher the ability to create their own  custom made  maps.


Students can create their own maps, pin important places, and measure and draw distances between places. For instance, Students may be studying American Authors. Students can create a map pinning the birth places or events in the life of that author. Once pinned, students can write a descriptions of that pin, insert pictures, videos or links. I have created a Screencast tutorial of some of the tools that are available in Mymaps.  If you need help please contact me at winterc@clarke.k12.ga.us or tweet me @ClintWinter
