Student Summer Journaling Activity

Summer has arrived and school has let out. The learning and fun with Ed Tech devices doesn’t have to stop here. Why not keep the brainpower energized with a simple creative writing activity. This doesn’t take much time to do and could be a fun way to share a little part of yourself with the class.  This summer I’m attempting to keep a Google Map Journal for my favorite summer activities.  I can’t wait for September when a student or teacher asks, “So Ms. Drasby what did you do over the summer?”, and in response I’ll open my “My Map Summer Journal”.

I believe an activity such as this could be used as a community ice breaker or a learning experience filled with real facts. You might even want to add a personalized touch by creating custom markers. It is amazing to think a simple map program may present an opportunity to unlock doors for exploring core content areas.
