We had a sick day today as Gess is struggling with a sinus infection and bad cough. The meds have finally started to work and so she woke up feeling better than she has in a few days. Since it is Friday I decided to do no school and just let her rest. So, what does a homeschool kid do when there is no school? Study maps of course!
Well that reminded me about this cool FREE tool I found awhile back. I have been meaning to mention it on some Free Friday, so here you are! It's the National Geographic MapMaker. They have printable 1 page Maps as well as a colorful Interactive MapMaker where you can add your own data, tools, and themes to make your own maps.
We were just studying about salmon so Gess wanted to learn about Alaska. Now she can add her own icons on the map. Here she has fishing boats and of course fish to represent the salmon in the region we learned about.
If you need some maps for class or have an aspiring map-o-olgist like my Gess (yes, she made up that word), check out the National Geographic Interactive MapMaker. Its FREE!
