How I Use It
When student have background questions, we research them using Google earth to explore new places.
My Take
This app has gained trust in my students as they can their own neighborhood so when we look at other places. Teaching in Hawaii is great but can limit a student's background knowledge. Google Earth let's us see the mainland from our classroom.
