Journaling with MyMaps

This activity will help provide basic steps for journaling about real events. Google My Maps will support the students with the ability to map their personal adventure. If they map a real walking adventure and the weather permits the class can go on the hike. Before the real hike begins the students can add up the mileage provided by the lines between the destination points. This will help them with internalizing the actual distance unit they will walk.

They can also have fun by capturing photos from the walking adventure and adding the images to the Google My Map. When adding the new image to the map the student is responsible for creating a title and summary about the image.  When writing the summary they can answer questions such as:

  • Why did they take the photo?
  • What is the image of?
  • How did the object get there?
