How I Use It
I have used this product to show my preschools Egypt and it was a great way to show them the 3D shape Pyramid. It is awesome because the children can move the camera and manipulate the view. I also used it as a themed field trip. Once we learned about the pyramids we used popsicle sticks to create our own pyramids. It worked well because it was easy to use and very interactive. Children love to learn actively and creatively and this website does both!
My Take
My overall opinion about this project as a teaching tool is where has it been????? I love this website because shows a different place miles away and brings it right to the classroom. The images are breath taking and will awe the children and motivate them to learn and pay attention to the lesson. It is a refreshing change for teaching it is helpful to bring technology to the preschools and still teach!
