Indigenous territories

In this activity, you will use Google My Maps technology to create a new map. You will pick one (or more) Indigenous communities that you would like to learn more about. Using satellite images and resources created by members of the community you are studying, you will explore how people have adapted to the territory they live in and ways that people have changed the territory to better suit their needs and wants.

This activity is for Elementary Cycle 3 and up. It focuses on the Establish Facts and Situate in Space Intellectual Operations.
