Google Earth

I have used Google Earth quite a bit. When I was living overseas, I had a lot of friends that were from all over the world, we used to use Google Earth to have a look at where each other lived. I love Google Earth, in some places you can so close and see even the cars parked in the driveway.

I think Google Earth is a great tool for teaching, especially teaching students about the world and the world map. You can incorporate it with other lessons on world history, having the students locate it on Google Earth and then comparing that to a traditional map, showing them the difference in perspective. I am constantly amazed with technology and the advancements it is making.

Till next time...
