If you have never been there, Google "My Maps" and it should show up near the top.
Things to do on My Maps
- Add Layers - had a teacher add a layer for each of the European Explorers, so the points would be colored differently.
- Share the map with students - Rather than color and draw the route, allow students to plot a voyage on the map using points and lines.
- Add Points - click the point, then place it on the map. You can name the point, add pictures from the internet, type in information, add links to other information, etc.
- Add Lines - Connect points to show a route. Connect multiple points (like the Indiana Jones maps if you remember those). Name the route and add details about it.
