Bud Not Buddy Google Map

While I was at the Discovery Educator Network institute in Washington DC this summer, I met Ms. Ruth Okoye. She created a Google Map that tracks Bud's walk across Michigan.

Use her map by clicking here.

Explore places like Flint, Owosso, and Grand Rapids. On many of her placemarks, she has linked files and pages that will teach you more about the Michigan Buddy lived in.


  1. Andy,
    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing it! I just bookmarked it to share with others.

  2. Thanks for the comment Lee. The real credit goes to Ruth. A pretty good example of how the DEN works I would say. The really useful thing about this map is that our 4th graders learn a lot of Michigan history and geography. It all ties it together.
