Updates and Resources from Rhode Island PBS Education Services
Happy Summer! What are you doing this month? Whether you are using your time for relaxation, travel, professional development, or working, we hope that you are having fun!
If you are looking for more fun, check out this PBS KIDS community map of places to explore across the country. You can also add your favorite places to the national map by completing this form.
Create a community map with your students this fall with Google My Maps. Use a Google Form to collect information, share editing access to a single map, or instruct students to create their own. Ask students to share their favorite places, create fictional stories, find and describe some important places in the community, include facts about the history of a location, etc.
How might you use this tool with your class?
