This map shows important locations for three different artists. I thought this could be a fun, interactive way for students to do a research project! My intent is to have students follow the tours and look at the locations for each artist, then have them choose one to do further research on. This map is more of an interest grabber for the kids, rather than a place for them to solely base their research upon. Eventually, students will create their own map with important places for the artist they chose. I think in the future I could add more artists, or even branch out and do different historical figures. This process made me think more about how I will explain the globe to my students. It’s kind of a strange concept to think about, and I think that this visual of the map will help!

Great idea to feature both artist’s museum and birthplace. Great use of MyMap to inspire student to make their own contributions.
