Third grade students are learning about different Native American tribes. Since geography is a weakness for most all of our students, I introduced them to Google My Maps.
Graphic Organizer, Collaboration
I created an graphic organizer with the names of the tribes (the list supplied by the third grade chair) and a column for the location of each group. They had to log into Google My Maps using their student email address, which some did more quickly than others. It is something they already do fairly regularly for other programs, but some had a hard time making the connection.
Google My Maps and Images
After marking the locations and renaming for each tribe, the students added an image for each tribe.
