Map of Memories

Lesson Plan Content
Life is a series of memories. Some of us record our memories with photo albums or write journals. Some of us use social media to share our experiences. Why not map them? In this lesson students will learn learn a way to record their memories using a mapping tool. Later as they write a compare and contrast essay, they will understand that there are similarities in human memories even though there are differences in geographic location.
