Grade 5 is using Google Maps to track environmental/sustainability issues that impact on our world. Using green, red or yellow markers, (positive, negative or neutral impact) students will be using global news sites to keep a record of what issues are occurring in the world with regard to sustainability. Each placemarker has a brief summary about what the issue is, where it’s occurring and what impact it is having on our world.
