Another journey has ended and it is good to be back in a larger living space for a while. Approximately 3500 miles with a long sprint for home means long days in the car.
We try to include some tech in our trips so we can offer new ideas to teachers. Our tech tool for this trip was Tour Builder. This Google addon allows the creation of a journal map with annotations and images associated with key points along the way. It is a great way to share a trip such as ours, but it has classroom applications in highlighting other journeys - say Lewis and Clark and the Journey of Discovery. The map we created is available if you want to explore.
