Geoinquiries: Maps and Data for Everyone
Baker, Thomas R.
Geography Teacher, v12 n3 p128-131 2015
Ever want to take a quick, deep-dive into a map found in students' textbooks? Ever want to use a web-based map to bring that static, print map to life? Maybe the map would be better with interactive or near real-time data. This article discusses the new Earth Science GeoInquiries! Earth Science GeoInquiries from Esri are instructional resources designed for the U.S. middle school Earth Science classroom. Each Earth Science geoinquiry takes about 15 minutes, ties to the Next Generation Science Standards, and is based on map concepts found in the leading textbooks used in schools today. GeoInquiries are content-forward, teaching Earth science concepts first, and uses ArcGIS Online maps and data to enhance that instruction, taking student engagement and inquiry deeper than would be experienced with the text alone.
