Today’s web-mapping tools (ArcGIS Online) allow students to investigate issues, compare data, and analyze patterns in dynamic and customizable environments, “to help young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world” (NCSS). The 8 activities presented here are a small sample of how social studies education can be enriched with web mapping and spatial analysis. Two lessons in each of the disciplines of geography, history, economics, and civics will be examined.
