With tomorrow marking the anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s Bard, I thought I’d put together a quick wee map marking some of the key places from Burns’ life.
Based upon some of the places mentioned on the Visit Scotland website, I plotted and labelled some of the locations using Digimap for Schools.
There’s a wealth of information available online about all the different places Burns’ lived and visited, and places that appeared in or inspired his poems.
Other Burns related things that you could map include locations of streets and places named after Burns, or perhaps locations of Burns’ statues – there’s a lot of them around the country! Remember you can upload photos, either your own or images found online, to your map in Digimap for Schools as well.
So get mapping, a great way to add another dimension to Burns related teaching resources.
