The teacher and students worked together to create a podcast on map reading skills. The five basic parts of a map are addressed and explained. Podcast uses humor and comparison to make the parts of a map more accessible and easy to understand. Podcast also uses music and sound effects. This podcast will likely be the first in a series of podcasts devoted to the geography portion of seventh grade Social Studies in Alabama.
