Students find Google Earth engaging. We are making placemarks for each region of North Carolina.

My Take

A great program to give students a sense of space and "place". We are combining Google docs and its research tool to find information about places in the three regions of North Carolina. We will organize our placemarks into one folder and then a class folder for viewing the placemarks.

How I Use It

Great teaching tool. When creating placemarks the students get experience with research, writing skills, and web page creation. The Google Earth placemark is a small web page that pops up when you click its placemark icon.
