Google Maps and Common Core

This week I had the opportunity to introduce some teachers to using Google Maps for more than just looking up directions. I was asked to address Common Core standards as a part of the workshop. These are some of the Common Core standards that I think you can address through the use of Google Maps.

  • Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and
    formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
  • Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events
    using effective technique, well-chosen details and well-structured event
  • Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.
  • Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
