This school year I am adding 6th Grade Social Studies to the list of subjects I get to teach. My plan was to have a simple bulletin board and place a few postcards around a map to help teach mapping skills. Thanks to an amazing PLN and friends my simple bulletin board and lesson has grown. Before school has even started I have received several post cards which sparked ideas on how I can make connections with these postcards not only to mapping skills but to people, culture, and world history. My simple bulletin board is now a wall with 3 different map types. Since I am also a very techie person I now have an interactive map thanks to ZeeMaps that I posted to my classroom website. As we receive postcards from around the world I will pin the places on both the Where in the World Wall and interactive map. I even added a QR Code to the wall as a short cut to the interactive map.
