World Wide

We’ve been travelling the world in computer class. Google Earth is a program that lets you go anywhere on the planet, and the kids have been exploring the globe. They can just spin and zoom anywhere, search for a favorite location, find guided tours of amazing sites, or “feel lucky” and get dropped in a random spot. We’ve gone lots of places in our school topic units this year (ancient Greece and Rome; following immigration and where our families come from) and Google Earth is a great way to bring faraway places to life.
