The whole world is excited about the Olympics this week, but many concerns have been raised about Rio’s readiness for the event.  Ready or Not, Let the Games Begin is a story map that overlays cultural, political, and geographic information over maps of Brazil and other related areas to give students a more rounded view of the circumstances surrounding the games.  Teachers can also use the story map format to create their own interactive maps or share maps on other topics that have already been made by other teachers.
