View Travel Map - Raki Family in a larger map
I use Google apps for lots of things, but I’ve never really played with Google Maps until recently. I made a map with my 8 year old son, charting out all of the places we have traveled (see above). This summer, we will be traveling around the US and he can’t wait to see where we can add “pins”. This got me thinking that it would be a great summer homework project. Have families create a Google Map with at least one pin a week indicating where they have been. (For students who stay close to home, the pins could be as simple as the supermarket or the library.) It would go great with the summer scavenger hunt that I usually send home. (Download the summer scavenger hunt free from my blog – Raki’s Rad Resources.)
