2017 Spring Book Project

You will use ArcGIS Online to create a Story Map for your chosen book.  A non-fiction book is preferable for this project.  The instructions for both ArcGIS and the project are here.  ArcGIS and Story Maps both work best with Chrome browser.  Internet Explorer does not play well with either program.

Sample Story Maps can be found here and here.

The rubric and tips here

The book list is here – remember, non-fiction will work best.  These are listed first on the list.

The Parent letter is here.

This project is turned in electronically through Google Classroom.

    • once you get into the Story Maps, when you are editing the text highlight some of it, then click the arrow next to Main Stage Actions. It will expand, and one of the selections will be a map marker. Click it, and then you can move the marker around to wherever you want on the map.

    • I’m not sure what you mean. You ought to be able to write as much as you want in the panel. Which Story Map type are you using?

      • Story Map Journal

      • the writing may be covered up when you insert pictures, so insert them first, then arrange your writing around them. are you using Internet Explorer? that might be the problem…

      • also, sometimes only a brief bit of the writing shows until you click the little button on the side to show the panel.

  16. what is the ARCgis password?

  17. In the rubric it says in order to get an A or B you must do research, what kind of research are you looking for?
