In this interactive episode, KidCitizen uses a historic panoramic map as an object for active inquiry to engage children in wondering about this representation of a place where people live. Students closely observe the geographic features, like rivers, shorelines, and farmland along with its plant life, animal life, and man-made structures. Students collect clues in the researcher journal and use them throughout the adventure. There are a number of pathways for inquiry. Students may apply their geographic and historical thinking strategies to wonder about movement of people or reflect on the unique qualities of the area that define it as a place.
