I know everyone has heard of Google maps but MyMaps is different. It's a way to create and share custom maps. There are a lot of ways to integrate it into lessons.
In this case they will be using it to create a map about Memorial Day. They have three project choices: one about the Civil War, one about current celebrations and one about overseas deployments. After they choose one to focus on, they research! Then they create a Google MyMap. Students can do it independently or collaboratively.
I included directions on how to use MyMaps and how to find it!
Students will need Google accounts to have access to GAFE (Google Apps for Education).
Have fun and enjoy! Great activity to close out the school year and build more appreciation for Memorial Day and our troops' service.
