The StoryMap is an online interactive presentation that guides the student through learning information with text, videos, photos, questions to ponder or research, links, and supporting graphics.

They record their work, in their own copy of a linked Google document, or by downloading and printing the linked pdf.
*If online access is an issue, the teacher or parent can guide students through the same material by printing the story/information and worksheets included with each lesson.
