Dear Educators,

Sometimes change happens slowly over time, and sometimes huge changes happen all at once. Slow changes that happen without you noticing allow you to adapt slowly, but transformative changes are much more jarring, or exciting!

We have a new collection in Maps101 of transformative educational content that we are really excited
to share with you!

We have a collection of GeoInquiries from Esri that we have transformed into self-guided, standards-aligned, inquiry-based lessons.

As the teacher, you have a PDF teacher guide, and your students have a beautiful, self-guided Lesson Map to use GIS-based inquiry to discover their world.

Explore the entire collection today! Topics from History, Geography, to Environmental Science!

View the whole collection!
GeoInquiries™ lessons were developed by Esri and designed to be fast and easy-to-use instructional resources that incorporate advanced web mapping technology. Each 15-minute activity in a collection is intended to be presented by the instructor from a single computer/projector classroom arrangement. No additional installations are necessary to use these materials. Any teacher can use a GeoInquiry, regardless of their prior experience with digital mapping tools.

Here are a few of our favorite lessons.

Marine Debris

(Environmental Science)

Investigate marine debris, the role of ocean gyres, and how humans impact trash accumulation.


Tropical Storms

(Earth Science)

Use hurricane track information to understand factors that encourage the formation of hurricanes.


Crop Circles

Use remotely sensed data to estimate and measure the area of (center-pivot irrigation) crop circles.

High-quality geography products for the classroom. From globes to wall maps, atlases to games, offers a wealth of products to help put your classroom on the map.
