Integrating Google Earth

My class LOVES using Google maps on the SMART Board.  We can drag the map to see satellite images of countries or search for a specific place.  We also use the pointer to fly round the world and zoom in to areas and tour cities in 3D.  Then we drag the little gold man on the zoom bar over an area so that we can see the pictures that people have posted. Pictures show up as little blue circles on the maps.  My students decide on a route and then check out what they will see on the trip.  We can capture those images to Notebook and then describe our journeys.

Happy Learning!
