Create a Tour

This Tour Builder tool designed by Google is a way for students and teachers alike to show various locations on a map. In regards to Social Studies, this can be used for teachers to show the places explorers ventured to on their voyages, beginning with their original country. This tool allows the creator to write a description next to the map and include a picture for a visual. A teacher could create a lesson with this website as a reinforcement or students might be able to use this as template for a project possibly on a particular explorer. This link shows an example of Tour Builder being used for the War on Independence. Overall, it allows students to visualize where specific events took place and the progression of certain events in history.
