Imagine students using an atlas equipped with annotation tools to create color-coded map labels that describe the hows and whys of inquiry-based learning. Consider a project asking students to identify the local, regional, or international origin of the food they eat. They could document each meal on an annotated map. Creating a visual grid of eating habits would allow students to investigate the various economic and social arguments for local food-sourcing. Think about it. You can chart geographical data for project-based learning activities on a student-generated map!
Explore more than 50 inquiry-based, map-making activities creating annotated maps to illustrate the global impact of the 1918 influenza pandemic, the primary languages spoken across South America, three routes to the Gold Rush, and more.
