Kids Love Google Earth

ipad google earth beykoz

My students love Google Earth. They love finding our school and their home.  We can use that energy to have the students do some cool things on Google Earth.

  • Use the zoom feature when talking about seeing details in writing
  • As a starting point in descriptive writing
  • When reading stories that happen in named places have students put push pins in the locations and save as a KMZ file
  • Use historical maps
  • Explore the location of your upcoming field trip.
  • Measure the distance from the school to local landmarks they are familiar with.
  • View deltas as rivers meet the sea
