Designing an Interactive Google Map

Good morning colleagues! I was not planning on blogging today, but I wanted to share about my awesome Spring break while ALSO demonstrating how to create an interactive Google Map!

In Drive, create a new map


Title your map, then add a layer and title


In your locations layer, click the pin, search for your location, and add to map


You can change the color and icon of your location.


In locations, add a second location. You can add an image and text description of your location.


Click on the "directions" icon. This will add a new layer where you can search from point A to B.


Change your map sharing directions so that everyone can see it!


And of course, here is my map of my break. Enjoy!

I hope that you could see a way to use these maps in your classroom, and I hope this was helpful in walking you through how to create one. Thanks for reading. I'll see you next week :)
