Product Description
This is a series of 7 introductory workshops to introduce students to ArcGIS-online, a free web-based Geographic information system. Each workshop builds upon skills learned in previous workshops. The workshops are designed to lead students from the very basics of the GIS to some more advanced functions and analysis. Activities proceed with step by step instructions and screen shots to help students learn each skill.

A basic, free account to ArcGIS is needed to begin using ArcGIS online.
Instructions on how to create an account are included first.

By the time students have completed the 7 workshops, they will be able to open a new map, change the base map, add data layers, examine and edit the map legend and symbols, examine the scale, measure distances and areas on their map, add map features, add text, examine and analyze data tables, create a heat map, add web links and graphics, create a map presentation and many more skills.
Workshop 7 is a series of challenges that students can attempt to show how a GIS could be used to solve a variety of problems - It is a very open ended activity.

2-3 75 minute periods will probably be required (31 pages in total)

Note: Some activities are Canadian based but can easily be adapted to fit your local needs.
