John Steinbeck and His Novels

John Steinbeck and His Novels

I’m often asked the question, “Do you have a GIS lesson for …..?”  These come in many varieties and I keep a running list of those requests.  One came today from a colleague, who was sure that I had created a Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men lesson.  Although I’ve taught that novel to my students over the years, I didn’t have a ready-made GIS lesson to send him.

With great tools like ArcGIS Online, I was able to quickly put together a simple map and point to some other great resources by Rick Thomas within the map.

Happy Earth Day!
