Create a Map Site

My Great Maps is a site for creating your own personalized map. Choose from maps such as states, regions, historical maps, world maps and countries.  You can add colors, a key, icons, text and so much more!  Use the site with or without a login.  If you create a log in you can save your maps and add notes to your map.  

This would be a fantastic site for our 5th graders as we begin the year with map skills.  Once a teacher signs up for an account, they can make accounts for their students.  This will allow the teacher to view their students' maps.

After you save a map, an embed code is available.  This makes it possible for students and teachers to put their personalized maps onto a blog or website.

Here is a map I created and embedded:

I highly recommend giving My Great Maps a try.
