Applying StoryMap to the Classroom
This would be a really cool activity to incorporate in the classroom. When kids comes back to school they could make a story map of a trip they took over the summer, winter or spring breaks. They could also use story map to accompany a history project, for example the route Christopher Columbus took, or the history of their family and where they came from. The website is fairly straightforward and could be taught to a class easily. Story map is a great replacement for the old-fashioned Power Point!
*The only thing I would change about Story Map is being able to add more than one picture per place. I Googled it and the creator said he didn't want to make it too complicated (not sure more than one picture would complicate it, but oh well).
Unfortunately, I could not figure out how to embed my story map using html so you'll have to click through the link to see it...sorry for the inconvenience!
