The Esri Education Outreach team is pleased to announce the release of a sample pack from the forthcoming GeoInquiries™ collection for World History classrooms. The sample pack includes the first four activities supporting high school World History instruction with ArcGIS Online. Eleven additional activities will be released over the coming weeks. Topics in the sample pack include: The Age of Napoleon, Early European explorers, Cradles of Civilization, and Trade and the Black Death. Teachers wishing to use the activities now are invited to complete the field test survey URL found at the bottom of each activity.
The new history collection is the eight geoinquiry collection supporting the mainstream use of ArcGIS Online in schools. Each collection contains 15 content-focused activities and is based on national curriculum standards, tied to key instructional books, and uses inquiry instruction to teach disciplinary content with ArcGIS Online. All activities and maps are free and licensed under Creative Commons for easy teacher modification. Explore all GeoInquiry collections at http://esri.com/geoinquiries .
