Mapping Our World Using GIS Media Kit: Our World GIS Education, Level 2
Mapping our World Using GIS, level 2 of the Our World GIS Education series, targets middle school and high school students with seven modules that build skills of geographic inquiry, spatial thinking, and GIS technology. Using step-by-step instructions, questions, and data, students can hone their problem-solving skills while studying global and regional geology, climate, populations, political boundaries, and economics. The lessons align to the National Geography Standards for grades 5-8 and 9-12, and a chart aligns the lessons to the National Science Education and National Technology curriculum.
The Mapping Our World Using GIS media kit includes a CD and a DVD. The CD contains files with student worksheets, GIS data for completing the lessons, and additional files and resources for teachers. The DVD contains a one-year trial version of ArcView 9.3 software for computers using Microsoft Windows operating systems.
