Greetings CTE Community:
I created two short activities that show how to do something really powerful in a GIS--join YOUR data to the amazing content in the Living Atlas of the World. I thought they would be of interest to the CTE community as the procedures to do so are technical, but not overly so, and in following them, students are building critical thinking and problem solving skills. They are using and working with a variety of data sets while studying about real world issues. On a technical level, they build several simple but powerful Arcade expressions using ArcGIS Online.
I hope these are useful and I look forward to hearing your reactions!
