Teacher Review For Google Earth

Exciting way to bring the world to your students! Geography comes alive by allowing students to visit the world's natural and man-made resources.

General
How I Use It
Fourth graders study states and can use it to discover what their state looks like geographically and even at a street level. Fifth graders select data from the Google Earth Gallery (such as US population data) to make Excel spreadsheets and graphs. Younger students use their mapping skills to find their homes and map their way to school.
My Take
Google Earth can be used in so many ways across so many grades!
