How I Use It
When teaching about plate tectonics I use a google earth tour of tectonic plates and of volcanoes. The tour helps students understand the connection between the movement of the tectonic plates and the location of volcanoes and other landforms.
My Take
Google Earth helps students to understand and visualize the role of plate tectonics and landforms. The site helps to make an abstract idea easier to understand.
