Put away those old fold-up maps and aging school atlases, Google Earth is here! Technology has revolutionized how students learn about geography and world cultures. In The World According to Google Earth, students use virtual maps, library books and online encyclopedias to find answers to six key questions about a country of their choosing. The students create presentations to inform the class about their chosen nation. Meanwhile, students learn to use Google Earth to create their own maps — adding placemarks, measuring distances and adding photographs. In the final part of the class, students create a model “World's Fair” with each pair of students designing a national pavilion for their country out of Legos. Geography class will never be the same!
