How I Use It
We've used Google Maps as part of virtual field trips. We enter the address/location of where we're going and check out the location before diving into more info for the trip. The kids love it!
My Take
Google Maps (Street View specifically) allows kids to navigate and explore the world around them. Kids can visit many historical sites around the world without leaving the classroom!
