*CANCELLED* Mapping Field Sketches - ArcGIS Online Maps
Sketch, GPS, observe, and map in a middle school student-led workshop, an opportunity to learn from the best. Seventh grade students from Hopkinton Middle High School spent 3 days (and 2 nights) hiking, exploring, sketching, and learning at the Cardigan State Park in Alexandria, N.H. These students share 1) how they slow down and notice details that would ordinarily be skipped over, 2) how they gather location data to supplement their journal entries, and 3) ultimately how they map and present their observations. Students provide mini-sketchbooks, help you sketch details, write observations, and gather latitude and longitude data. Sketches are then scanned, geo-referenced, and mapped, using ArcGIS online mapping software (FREE to K-12 educators). Learn from the best: the students themselves.
