PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Everyone uses Google Maps - they’ve just about replaced folding paper maps from the gas station or TripTiks from Triple A - so students should be familiar with them too. And young students (4th-6th) grade love finding there way around on Google Maps, whether they’re looking for famous landmarks, a route to the local zoo, or their own house. This unit includes step-by-step instructions, with screen shots, for guiding students on an exploration of Google Maps. It will guide you through routing distances and time, satellite view, place-pictures, street view, and peg man. It also includes two worksheets with answer keys. The second worksheet is more complicated and includes a webquest that teaches students how to use hyperlinks. I have used this lesson on Google Maps for several years and it is a fun as well as educational unit that requires students to think critically and explore independently. You should allow 3 to 5 class periods for teaching and testing students on Google Maps. This 13-page download is formatted as a PDF.
