The students are learning map skills in georgraphy class and we will be doing a comptuer project that reinforce their understanding. They will be creating their own fake GPS with directions from their house to school. We will be using Google Maps to get the directions from their home to school. They will print a copy and create a GPS narration from it using North South East and West in their directions. They will also use Microsoft PowerPoint Mix to screen capture their map and add their narration. Microsoft MIX is a new add on to PowerPoint that let's students narrate, ink (write on their slides), screen capture, and more. This is a multi-week project. This week we will do the screen capture and print the directions.

Finish Mystery Partner Letters
Students will come to class with their handwritten letters for their partners. They will finish typing in their letters in class. Then they will change the way the font looks and add images. I'll demonstrate how the "ribbons" have changed in Office 2013. Students will print their letters after I have reviewed them.
