How I Use It
As a biology teacher, I use Google Earth to draw comparisons between various biomes and to explore physical geography. Students' findings and connections can build understanding of how physical geography can affect life and climate.
My Take
Students love exploring on Google Earth. The multiple layers help to build in depth understanding of physical geography. It is also a wonderful tool for building cross curricular connections between the sciences and social sciences.
