Mapping Halloween

Anyone that knows me or reads this blog regularly knows that I love maps. This morning I was on the Google LatLong blog where I came across a great idea for using Google Maps for mapping trick or treating routes. Halloween is just a week away, next week you may want to have students map their "trick or treating" routes either before or after they go "trick or treating." Probably the best approach to accomplishing this is to have students mark on a map the places where they got the best candy treats.

If you have never tried to make a Google Map, here is a short video tutorial.
