MN Geology with Google My Maps

Over the last several classes the students have been creating MN Geology Maps in Google My Maps. This is a repeat assignment from last year with a few notable changes for the better. The biggest change was adding a rubric the students used to assess their placemarks. In the past it was very difficult to assess the maps, but this time I used more specific criteria like links, photos titles in addition to the content. I also simplified the login process by using a single login for the entire class (+30 students). Finally, I created a Google Site to use as the source based on the Virtual Egg Carton from the Minnesota Geologic Survey.

Please check out the rubric and create a copy and modify it yourself. Please comment with criteria you would like to see added.
