We just started working on a United States Regions tourist website in Social Studies. First we created all of the 13 colonies on a map (we are studying about the Northeast now). Then we had to create symbols and keys so readers can understand the map. I looked up everything like rocks, stones, oceans, mountains, valleys, and more! I also used google draw to help me understand how maps work. In addition, we are using google sites to make our websites. This project helps kids learn in a fun way. If I had the choice, I would MUCH rather create a website over taking a test. It allowed me to be creative while learning! Check out the beginning of my project below!
