Short interview with 8th grader about his MyMap that is discussed below.
The map above and linked here, was made by a current eighth grader (interviewed above). I made a copy in June of last year, so it will not show any additions he may have done since.
His my map is made up of eight layers: Three from sixth grade and five from seventh grade. You turn layers on by clicking the box. The second image shows the Gov. & Religion box from 6th grade opened. He has 18 locations on this layer of his my map.
Each layer has unique things related to the concept name of the layers. So this map has many items on it about each content standards we address.
