How I Use It
I used it in a "rate" activity. I had students find the distance between several locations of their choice, and then calculate the time it would take given a rate of speed, or the rate of speed when given the amount of time it took to get there.
My Take
Google Earth is a great tool to use to help students explore the globe without leaving the classroom.
