Google Lit Trips

An exciting use of Google Earth within the classroom - possibilities are endless.
Using Google Earth create a trip - using place markers and information descriptions using movies [use embed code], images and words.
An excellent example can be seen here at Point England School. They used a book base for their trip and made a trip around NZ using research for each place using information from the book. Further information on Google Lit Trips can be seen here.
Other uses:
  • historical research - trips around historical venues
  • fairy tales - imagine where these 'may' have taken place
  • trip of the places visited in a book
  • vacation sharing
  • following an inspirational person
  • amazing race from the classroom
  • countless others
Thanks so much to Dorothy Burt for the inspirational poster session.
