All about GeoInquiries

Special thanks to Esri Education for these wonderful resources!

}

15 minutes

A GeoInquiry is a 15-minute, pre-built activity designed by Esri Education that allows teachers to cover required content using a free, online, interactive map. The activities are standards-based and closely follow the map concepts taught in leading U.S. textbooks.

ArcGIS Online

Esri’s GeoInquiries are meant to be a short introduction into pertinent content using the interactive ArcGIS Online maps and data while exciting students about the world around them. Consider using them in different experiential settings: one computer with projector class discussion or one-to-one activity for students.

Editable

They can be modified to reflect different instructional settings. If the teacher would rather tailor the GeoInquiry with different questions, download then edit the document in Microsoft Word 2013 or newer, to create custom student worksheets!

Shareable

Because they are published under Creative Commons, they can be loaded to the school or district learning management system such as Edmodo, Blackboard, Portals, or Google Classroom. A flipped classroom setting is perfect for this type of experience. Assign students the GeoInquiry for investigating prior to a class discussion or further investigation.

Take an adventure around the ArcGIS Online tools used in the Esri GeoInquiries collections.
