We will do this using Google Earth.
Let’s get everything ready:
First, if you don’t already have Google Earth, download and install it by going here. Next, go ahead and open Google Earth. You should see the whole world. Now simply follow the instructions below for mapping your connection to the Kaw. You can scroll through the slides on this page or download the PDF using the link below the image. This will guide you through the process of building your own Google Earth map of the Kansas River. Now you can enjoy exploring the Kaw!
So what did you find? How far is your school from the river? How about your home?
