What is Google Earth?

 

Google Earth is a vertural globe that lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places, and share with others. There is so much that can be done with google earth such as

all theses can be Incorporated into a lesson plan to help as a visual aids to your teaching and lessons. as an ice breaker for this exercise try asking the students to name places they have visited, their home towns or cities they have family. then zoom off google earth goes to show images of theses places. this will intrigue and captivate your students
