Discovering Downtown

The middle school Citizenship class worked in teams and used critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creative problem-solving to design websites and Google Map walking tours of downtown Orlando. Each team of students integrated the five themes of geography (location, place, human-environment, movement, and regions) they experienced during four walking tours of downtown Orlando into their projects. On their tours, they photographed architecture, art, history and topography seen downtown. The goal was to educate visitors on how the world is exemplified in downtown Orlando. Their web design skills and creativity are showcased in four unique websites.
