Dots Across The USA
Using data from the 2005-9 American Community Survey from the Census Bureau Matthew Bloch, Shan Carter and Alan McLean of The New York Times have designed an interactive map called Mapping America: Every City, Every Block. On the education blog of that paper, The Learning Network, extensive suggestions for use of this map in our classrooms are given. This visual interpretation of our census date is impressive and informative.
