How I Use It
We "travel" to places we are reading about in class. Students also look up their own addresses and print out a "photo" of their "neighborhood" at the beginning of the school year. These can be posted along with a written piece for all to see and read.
My Take
Students are mesmerized by this investigative program. They enjoy finding and "taking pictures" of places they are studying about. I hope this stays free forever!
