Zeemaps Euro Trip

I’ve written about zeemaps before, but recently finished a project with my 7th grade geography class that reaffirmed its handiness. The students had to create a mock trip to Europe and write a journal entry about the things they did and saw in the various cities. They started off by finding the cheapest flight into a European city using Orbitz and then documented the places they traveled on zeemaps.

The cool thing about zeemaps is that it requires no registration. Each map gets a unique number. All you have to do is go back to that number to re-edit anything on the map. Students had to complete 2-3 journal entries a day and would update their zeemap with the entry and a picture each time. Not having to log in or worry about passwords or registrations made it quick and easy. Here are a couple examples.
