A Simple Google Earth Learning Activity
As I was driving yesterday I thought about the picture of Morrison in Rugby, ND and how I might work it into a geography lesson. The idea that eventually came to me was to use the picture at the beginning of an introduction to navigating Google Earth and or Google Maps. I might obscure the "Rugby, ND" part of the picture and ask students to use Google Earth to find the center of North America. Of course, I could use the same activity for all seven continents.
If you want to use the picture above for a simple geography lesson, you may do so. Click it to open it in full-size before downloading.
