Pangea Lesson Using Google My Maps

Last week in Social Studies I watched a teacher present a lesson about Pangea. The teacher used a graphic image they had found to explain the formation of Pangea as a Supercontinent. Right away I realized by using Google My Map one could create a visual to support both the visual and kinesthetic learners understanding of how this Super Continent was formed.
