Use Google Maps to tell a story of historical or literary figure! The only rules are that you have to use Google Maps proper in order to tell the story- the map by itself should tell a story. You will need to create a map under "My Places" and edit the map o add your locations. The story portions should be added to the descriptions in each location, use text, links, even pictures. In your bog post, use the link tool to embed and or link to your map. For examples see: http://www.wetellstories.co.uk/stories/week1/ as well as Google Lit Trips
