Google Earth Pinpoints! #resvt

As part of our social studies unit on geography and comparing cultures, students are responsible for meeting technology standards. In this unit, the technology standard expected for students to achieve is "Using digital mapping resources, such as National Geographic Maps, Google Earth and Google Maps, they can locate the region of the culture they are studying and mark it." Our second graders have been exploring Google Earth and marking locations such as their houses and other points of interest. This has been a very popular tool for our class! We love exploring new locations!
