Backyard Mapping

Backyard Mapping

Children use a map to explore the features and layout of their outdoor learning area. They note personal connections to their outdoor environment and represent their thoughts, feelings and/or observations using their choice of medium. This activity is designed to help connect children to the wonders of the natural world through sensory and play-based learning. This activity is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, children are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Nature Mapping

Nature Mapping

In this activity students work as a class to make a nature map of their school. Students take a walk around the school looking for signs of nature, drawing and taking notes about what they see and reporting back their findings to the class. They then create a new map that shows all the features of biodiversity they found in their school yard.

Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator is a FREE web-based tool lets you build a VR ‘tour’ using Google Street View imagery and the bonus is that you can even add your own 360 photos, if you have that available. The interface is designed with educators and pupil in mind and is all simply drag-and-drop. The flexibility of tour creator is that you can choose any points of interest within the Google Street View maps and add extra texts, or points of interest if you like. With the Virtual Tour you can save any tour you have made and also publish it, for public or private use. The ability to import tours to the Google Expeditions app is not available yet but will be very soon states Google. Being able to create an Expedition and share it with a classroom of pupils is a great opportunity for technology being able to bring people closer, to understand other people worlds. Not every pupil will need a VR headset as this can be created and used on a laptop attached to an interactive whiteboard, but for those that are lucky enough to have a class set the sense of immersion and engagement would be outstanding I think. This presentation informs you what Google Tour Creator is and I have created a simple model that can be used to show pupils as an example.

What Is The Route Of The Tsars - The Trans-Siberian Railway

In the late 19th century, Japan, Britain and America gained footholds on the Chinese coast as bases for their trade with China and the Orient. Russia needed to secure a foothold in the east as well as securing the vast expanses of Siberia, so in 1891 Tsar Alexander III approved a plan for a trans-continental line linking Moscow and St Petersburg with Vladivostok on the Pacific coast, as this was the only year-round ice-free port in Russia. These worksheets allow the students to study the Trans-Siberian railway, study its timeline and produce a suitable logo an slogan which could be used to advertise the journey.
