Product Description

Learn to use Google Earth and add technological richness across the content areas in grades 6-8 with this highly engaging, easy-to-use resource that offers flexibility for authentic 21st century learning. This teacher-friendly book provides step-by-step instructions, lessons, and activities that integrate this technology into social studies, science, mathematics, and English language arts curriculum. All lessons are differentiated for a variety of learning styles and activities are leveled for all learners. In addition, suggestions for flexible groupings and for extension activities are also included. Using Google Earth: Bring the World into Your Classroom shows teachers how to help their students start their own .kmz folders and fill them with layers of locations that connect their own lives to the curriculum, and to build cross-curricular connections. The included Teacher Resource CD includes .kmz folders and templates plus clear, easy-to-follow directions to lead students (and teachers) to see a global view by starting with their own neighborhoods and then moving outward.

Color: Level 3-5 Verified Purchase
I think this may be the most well-written and well-designed teacher resource book I've ever come across. I ordered all 3 books (Level 1-2, Level 3-5, and Level 6-8) for the elementary school library where I'm librarian, after I attended a teacher workshop on GoogleEarth. The workshop had gotten me excited about the possibilities for using GoogleEarth in the classroom, but I found the prospect of learning all the ins and outs of the software, sorting through the wealth of online resources related to it, and deciding how to apply it to the curriculum, to be a bit daunting (as in, taking more free time than I could find to apply to it.) These books were the perfect solution. The lesson plans are creative, clear, concise, and complete. They offer step-by-step and "click-by-click" instructions that make learning GoogleEarth easy for both teacher and students, and that make excellent use of this amazing online resource. Teachers can get familiar with all the functions and features of GoogleEarth one lesson at a time, as they share the lessons with students, rather than feeling like they have to learn the whole package themselves before beginning to use it in class. The lessons show how to use GoogleEarth in teaching many different subject areas beyond the obvious ones (geography and Earth sciences) -- the applications for bringing history and literature alive for students are really creative. I love the way the lesson plans have all the substance you need, in a very uncluttered, easy-to-follow format, and include a reproducible hand-out for the student which helps him/her focus on the main idea of the lesson.
GoogleEarth is an amazing tool, and these books are curriculum-writing at it's very best.
