Google Earth Article

Here is a link to a Google Earth article from Edutopia that I thought was interesting:

It will give you a nice overview of the possibilities for classroom use.

My co-worker, Peggy, said she would be happy to connect with us some time via iSight/iChat to show you all the fabulous ways you can use Google Earth to enhance your curriculum.

Just something to think about....

Oh...and here's a pic of China I "took" from Google Earth....and one of Beijing

My family and I just traveled around the world in an hour. This will be great for our China unit and our ocean unit.
