Animaps is a great tool for students and teachers to use when creating lit trips or historical map stories. The ability to string together sequences of locations, events, and information using maps allows students to demonstrate deep levels of learning beyond just what they know.
Teacher created Animaps are excellent for communicating supplemental and other content related information to students. Teachers can create Animaps as an alternative to having students watch a video or view a PowerPoint slideshow.
Visit the Animaps web site for a tutorial and examples about using Animaps. The Lexington Animap reenactment of the Battle of Lexington is a great example of how students and teachers can use Animaps.
"Animaps extends the My Maps feature of Google Maps by letting you create maps with markers that move, images and text that pop up on cue, and lines and shapes that change over time.
