Grade 4, Google Earth Scavenger Hunts
Ms. White's and Mr. Yetmans Grade 4 classes took part in a Google Earth Scavenger Hunt today. Using Google Earth the students started off their search at the school and had to follow direction leading them across the city, from the Hindu Temple, to the airport, to Georgetown, trying to answer different questions using embedded wikipedia links and images that have been addeed to Google Earth via Panaramio. The lesson stressed using compass directions, reading the clues carefully, looking at images, and maneuvering through the program. It was pretty fun, although it can be easy to get lost in St. John's, even virtually!
