During World Geography period with Mrs. Marjorie Ward, sixth grade students worked with a mix of new and old technology. Using the powerful tool of Google Maps with Google Chromebooks, students continued research projects on Europe by examining more closely the countries and capitals in Eastern Europe.

Tying in Google Maps to already existing resources, adds a new dimension of visual excitement, bringing to life maps and making deeper connections to the material. Students were able to give instant feedback to Mrs. Ward and revealed what they had learned by labeling the countries on a physical map and compiling additional information on a graphic organizer.
