How I Use It
Google earth is a great app to use, It offers a great geographical experience. For instance lets Pick the statue of liberty if we are studying about Ellis island I can pull up Google earth and there it is. We had a game were we put different country's on small pieces of paper and put them in a jar, and each student had a turn to pick from the jar and we would go to that country on Google maps and pull up a bio about the country. What didn't work or what should be added is a link to the country's info.
My Take
The app is fast and accurate. we can quickly find any place we are learning about. Great learning tool.
