Corn Maze Geography

This is going to be so cool…

Next fall we’re hosting a new workshop integrating Social Studies and Technology: Corn Maze Geography.

Corn MazeWhat’s that, you say? Well, it started out as Kelly Gaideski (BCISD Social Studies Consultant) and I were putting some ideas together for a workshop for using GPS receivers and Google Earth together to address Social Studies standards. While looking around the net I came across Corn Maze Geography: Teaching Geography Using Corn Mazes. How fun is that? If you’ve never been to a corn maze…it’s time to go, they’re a blast!

And so…on September 18 we’re going to be at Barbott Farms and Greenhouse in Stevensville from about noon to 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided and we’ll spend the afternoon playing around experiencing a variety of geography lessons as well as using GPS to navigate through the maze. The GPS units will be available to borrow from the ISD so participants will have a great opportunity to put them to good use.

More information to follow…mark your calendars!
