Google Earth

In Social Studies the sixth graders have been studying the 5 themes of geography, latitude and longitude, and the tools of geographers. On Tuesday, they put what they have learned to the test. I gave them a list of coordinates that they had to input on Google Earth. They then had to explore the location, describe what they saw, and try to determine where they were. It was a very fun activity that they really enjoyed. Please ask them to tell you about it, if they haven’t already!
