Teacher Review for Google Earth

Great app that allows students to visualize the places they are learning about without actually visiting.

How I Use It
Have students use the app to visit/research the places they are learning about in Social Studies class. They can also use to find where they are on the planet in relation to other places.
My Take
It's a great app that students actually like to use, and will use without being prompted to do so. It is not a great learning tool, but simply a resource that can be used in addition to a lesson.
