Product Description

Great bundle value with 5 packs all related to using Google Maps in the classroom. Each pack has student self-directed worksheets that are solved by using Google Maps.

Activity Sheets for the Middle School students. Great fun solving problems using Google Maps(and Google Earth). Simple instructions but challenging activities.

I have found that the students in my class need very little instruction to complete the tasks, so long as they understand the Google Maps tools.

1. Creating a Travelling Distance Chart

2. Solve the Riddle

3. A Different Type of Easter Egg

4. Fantasy Island

5. Landmarks Around the World

6. Cruising the Seas

8. The Earth’s Grid System

9. From Pegman’s Point of View

10. Time & Weather Clues

11. Sites with a View

12. Home Sweet Home

13. Street View Safari

14. Who Am I?

15. National Parks

17. A Mission for Agent Pegman

18. Things to do on Google Earth

This is a pack of worksheets with Math problems students can do on Google Maps. The problems cover a range of activities, but my class particularly liked the activity based on Disneyland where they had to zoom in on Street View as well as use the Earth function to mathematically calculate the number of car parks in a particular structure at Disneyland, and also calculate the commercial profitability of the car park.

This is a multi-skilled pack for Middle School students and those who have bought my other packs over the years (thank you all!) you will know that each sheet is well laid out, nicely presented and encourages the student to work independently on each activity.

As well as the Disneyland activity, the pack includes:

- searching for mathematical street names in a particular location(we found more than 10 names!)

- researching odd mathematical locations

- measuring and comparing distance

- and more

10 pages of worksheets, PLUS an answer key.

24 pages of worksheets for upper primary/lower secondary students using Google's fabulous Street View, newly updated with Answer Key and further instructions for Agent Pegman.

Activities include:

- looking for animals on safari

- looking for unusual landmarks

- perform some exemplary spy work

- visit some very obscure locations

- stand right in the middle of Stonehenge, Legoland, Warwick Castle gardens and travel the slopes of Whistler

Great worksheets for Middle School students based around the story of Easter and everything connected with Easter (Easter Eggs - chocolate and non-chocolate!, Easter Island, the Easter sites of significance, and more.)

Use Google Maps to complete the worksheets

Learning objectives include:

• Ability to calculate distances in Google Maps

• Ability to insert Placemarker information in Google Maps

• Ability to use creativity and imagination in developing a fantasy island

• Ability to construct a map with all key features

• Ability to locate information in Google Maps using coordinates

• Ability to apply some simple knowledge of Excel.

All the activities were great fun in my classroom, and the students could progress through them at their own pace and without too much direction.

Representing data on a map is an important form of communicating information to the reader. Information graphics need to provide the right information in the clearest format possible. Google Maps provides an easy facility to display data for any reader, and anybody can use this facility to upload their information.

An excellent introduction to this topic would be for the teacher and students to explore the range of ways that data can be represented on a map. Different ways include heat maps, geographic stretching of continents, icons and symbols, colors and shades, bar graphs, and interactive maps.

The lessons and activities in this unit of work are for the lower and middle secondary years of schooling and focus on how to add Placemarks and how to bulk upload more than one data point to show a broader range of data.

Simple instructions and clear screenshots, along with relevant student activities make this unit of work self-instructing for every student.
