Google Earth is such a fascinating tool! Students can click on the Earth icon and be taken anywhere around the world, right on their device. If the class is studying a specific country in the world, then kids could “visit” major cities and historical landmarks and learn more about it. Or if students are learning about current events in any country they could virtually tour the location and get a better sense of that city/countryside.

Google Expeditions sounds very engaging. The teacher can lead students on the expedition and explore places far out of reach – like a volcano or hurricane! Kids can see, hear, and feel everything. It pulls them completely into the topic in a way that piques their interest even more.
