Creating a digital map with multiple points


Pin the following locations within the Salish Sea on a google map. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, see HOW TO CREATE A MAP WITH MULTIPLE POINTS.

For places you have personally been to, choose ORANGE as the color of the "marker" or "pin". For places, you have yet to go, choose GREEN.

2. Choose one of the locations to look up and do a little research about (*this should be a location that you have not been to or a GREEN pin on your map). Tell us which location you chose, and share 3 facts about it.

3. Choose a location within the Salish Sea that you feel a connection to (this may be a spot that you already have located on the map, or it may be somewhere that has not been yet identified - either is ok). Color code that "marker" to be RED. Write a brief story about why you feel connected to this particular place.

4. Post to the discussion board. Include a link to your map, three facts about a place you have not been, and your short story about the place you are connected to.

5. Explore your classmate's maps and read through each other's responses. Make a minimum of two additional posts on the discussion board (by Sunday at midnight). 

Some things you might consider as you're exploring each other's maps, and making comments: 

  • Do you notice any interesting patterns? 
  • How much of this information is new? 
  • What new places are you excited about visiting?
  • What places do you want to learn more about?
