A Collection of Interactive Maps

Using interactive maps in the classroom encourages exploration, invites curiosity and promotes spatial thinking. Interactive maps can be used to provide students with background knowledge to launch a unit, or they can be used as a starting point for digging deeper into any concept through research. Interactive maps can be used to explore a wide variety of topics in traditional ways, or they can be used creatively to help students visualize just about anything.

The ThingLink Challenge for week 4 asked teachers to create an interactive map on any topic. I've assembled the collection of maps on a Padlet wall for other educators to explore and reuse. Here you will find a lot of expertise and creativity from the participants.
