Here at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle we're retooling our science learning experiences for schools - rather than booking a guided program, we have a suite of shorter experiences available around the zoo. The experiences can support one of three "driving questions" students can explore, gathering observations and evidence, and discuss back in the classroom. I figured a StoryMap Tour might be a good way to present this "choose your own adventure" in a map-based way. So here's my shot at it!
Tuesday & Wednesday experiences
Thursday & Friday experiences
Would love ideas, thoughts, feedback! Some challenges or questions I had along the way (most likely related to my lack of experience building this type of tool!)
- limited customizability of some text (e.g. can't make the titles in the bottom banner bold)
- I need to digitize a PDF of our zoo map for a basemap, I used OpenStreetMap but having our own basemap would be better
- if you make the first slide an "Intro" it shows up once and then it seems you can never get back to it, so I kept it as a slide so people could return to the info as needed
- and a few other small things!
If you have suggestions of other ways to approach this project, would love to hear them!
