Day 244. Our Year 3 classes at school are doing a unit of work on Buildings and Structures, and I wanted to come up with something for them that helped get a sense of a variety of places and where they can be found around the world. So I spent some time this morning making these cards. They were made in InDesign then printed out, cut up and laminated. The kids were randomly assigned a card for a building that they then had to find on Google Maps Engine Lite, mark with a pin and add some information to. The finished map is here and I think it's a pretty good effort for a single lesson of work by 8 year old kids.
If you'd like a copy of the cards for use for your own purposes, you can download them here as a PDF.
