Last week while reading some random blog I found myself immersed in Google Earth related lesson plans. I find these lessons so interesting because they tie some concept to a geographical location. Using the power of Google Earth I am immediately hooked on something I would have otherwise skipped or ignored. I wonder how many of our students feel this way? GoogleLitTrips is a perfect example of using Google Earth to support a lesson which many students may not find interesting. Check out the Grapes of Wrath tour of America. Now I actually want to go and reread that book just to connect the places to the story!
