When you think about mapping, do you tend to think of it as an activity that is only done in social studies classes? Think again. Maps can be used to tell stories and students can tell stories with maps. In this session, Nikki D Robertson will explore how you can use Google MyMaps to teach nonfiction and fiction stories, as well as to develop research skills in a collaborative environment.

How fun! I am going to try to make a map that shows our trip to visit our daughter!
Discover: let the students tell you what they found out and share with class.
Add layers for particular things or order that you want them to look.
