Why Use Google Maps?

It may seem like an app for history classes only, but there are endless uses for Google Maps in the classroom. Settings for a novel? Estimating the circumference of famous landmarks? Calculating distances?  Viewing places in the Bible? The best thing about Google Maps is that you can personalize them by using MyMaps from your Google Drive.

Share a map with your class, or ask your class to create them individually or in small groups. Add photos, text, links, images, etc. Here’s a video to get you started!
