Here Is A great Interactive Tool to Teach Students How to Read A Map

Here Is A great Interactive Tool to Teach Students How to Read A Map | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Here is a great educational tool we came across today as we were working on the list of social studies websites for elementary students. Reading a Map is an interactive web tool provided by the National Park Service that helps students develop their reading map skills. Students get to learn how to read different data on the map, identify major types of maps and navigate their ways through the typography of a map. The tool is free to use and does not require any software installation or registration.

Context transforms information into knowledge! | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Wow! THE TEAM at ContextU just unveiled a beta test site that is terrific.They have developed a way to present the CONTEXT of events, people, places and concepts that is truly wonderful to use. Although this first test is dedicated to the American Civil War, I can't wait to see the rest of human knowledge presented in this way. Whether you are a student, a teacher, a scholar or a curious individual, this really helps information to be transformed into knowledge! I urge you to visit http://www.contextu.com and to share it with your friends and family!
Lee Hall's insight:

See events of the Civil War in context of what else was happening.
