Students Create Google Maps

Mrs. Bloch's 6th Grade Social Studies Classes have been busy creating Google Maps to learn about the countries they are studying. Students import a spreadsheet with place markers on the countries they are researching and studying. Students complete facts for each country. Students are able to associate the location of a country with the the facts. Students enjoy working on the computers and can refer to their map to study and compare the countries in the region they are studying. The maps are shared with Mrs. Bloch so she can review student's work and comment on their work.
