Google Earth Tour Builder is the thing I have been looking for since 2002!
You can read all about it on the Google Maps Blog. Once you do, head right over to the Tour Builder and get to work. It is so intuitive, you will hardly even need to bother with directions.
The possible educational applications are limitless:
- Make your own Novel-related Lit Trip.
- Plot distances in Math class.
- Make a family trip come to life!
- Use it for, well, nearly every unit in Social Studies and History.
- Follow your favorite musher in the Iditarod.
- Make moving infographics.
- Geo-tag your field trip photos.
- Chart your Project Noah research.
- Map storms and other weather.
- Collect and plot out scientific data.
I can't wait to hear about all of the ways you put this amazing resource to use!
