How I Use It
I use this app frequently when we are reading/introducing new topics in all the main subject areas. Our stories frequently mention/refer to a variety of countries, cities, and towns all over the world and this app is perfect for taking the kids on a virtual "trip" to that location. I also use this app to introduce and teach about maps and the kids can use it as a reference for making their own maps in the classroom.
My Take
I really enjoy using this app in my classroom to take my kids on mini trips from our location to different places in the world. The function to travel from location to location is great for the kids to see how far different location are from one another. The built-in saving function is great so that we can continually revisit place all through the school year.
