Using Google Maps with Common Core Standards

Using Google Maps with Common Core Standards | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

These are some of the Common Core standards that I think you can address through the use of Google Maps.

Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.

Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details and well-structured event sequences.

Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.

Check out Google Maps for Educators to find directions on how to create placemarks in Google Maps.

Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.

See Tom Barrett's Maths Maps for ideas on using Google Maps in elementary/ primary grades mathematics lessons.
