Google Maps is a great tool for children to explore their local area but have you thought about using it in maths lessons? Below is a maths map of Hull where the children can navigate to local landmarks and then answers maths questions based on what they can see. The questions on this map are aimed at upper KS2 (ages 9-11).

This was set up by clicking on the My Maps link when on the Google Maps site and then creating a new map. A direction marker is then dropped on the correct place for the landmark and the landmark information edited to include the maths question.
