Take Your Students on an Amazing Race
An engaging lesson is really about packaging. Regardless of subject, if we wrap up our content in an ugly bag, students won’t want it no matter how great it is. However, that doesn’t have to be the case! Join this session to see how you can apply an “Amazing Race” style activity, using Google My Maps and Forms, to any subject area, with examples of how it has been used with students. You’ll have an opportunity to experience the excitement of participating in one, learn the tools used to create one, and have ample time to begin creating your own!
