Students will then add their own photographs to their My Google Maps. They will choose their most successful five photographs of the buildings and will add them to their Google Map by using the place mark tool. Once they have placed a placemark a bubble will pop up which allows them to edit the placemark. Students have a variety of options here. They can name their placemark, add text and images, and by clicking on the icon inside the bubble, even change what the placemark looks like. Students will use this tool to add the photographs of their buildings along with descriptions of the buildings and why they are important to the neighborhood.
Along with their My Map they will be responsible for producing a set portfolio of images. Each student will be responsible for producing at least five well-composed images of their specific neighborhood. These images will be the ones sent to the historical society to be curated and included in the updated version of the book.
