On Friday a Grade 5 teacher wanted to an activity involving Google Earth where the students would search around the Nile River for a variety of landforms. They would mostly rely on the pictures found on Google Earth as well the natural features you can see there. I told her it sound alright, and made the arrangements to do it with the students.
Looking closer at Google Earth though, I remembered a recent post I had seen detailing the fact that more tours had been added to Google Earth. I checked them out, and they were pretty interesting, but I had no idea that it was so easy to actually create your own tours!
