Google Earth

Mrs. Myers worked with Dr. Newett’s social studies classes to teach them how to use a couple of the features on Google Earth. The students practiced measuring distance by using the ruler and looking at our school (the buildings, football field, etc). We also learned how to get an altitude measurement … Mount Everest is not a cake walk! Finally, Mrs. Myers and students walked together through creating a tour. Students then created a tour that included three places for a class grade.

And in one class, Mrs. Myers found a young man who taught the class how to do street view on Google Earth.
