Help your students travel the world by using Google Maps and Google Earth in Your Middle School and Elementary School Classroom! #googleearth #googlemaps #taskcards #middleschool #elementarysocialstudies

Hello all!  I have been using Google Earth and Google Maps in my classroom for over three years now and it is a game changer!
Not only does Google earth act like a digital globe, students can use Google Maps and Google earth to enter 360° photo spheres to experience locations in all directions.  This is awesome to use with any location in social studies (i.e. Colosseum, Pyramids of Giza, Tigris and Euphrates, etc.) but also is wonderful to add another layer to novel studies.  You can have your students deep dive into the setting f a book by "traveling" there and experiencing what the characters might have seen!

It is easier to show you how to use it so check out this video!

If you want to see how it can work in your classroom go ahead and download this FREE Ancient Rome Google Earth Task Cards and Activities.
