How I Use It
One example of using Google Earth was in a 1st grade classroom to enhance a social studies lesson on continents around the world. First, the whole-class looked for each continent together. Then, students had time to explore on their own using iPads.
My Take
Google Earth can be used at any grade level in many different subject areas- math, social studies, culture, geography, and more.
