Second graders in Mrs. Moerdyk's class have learned to use Google Earth to explore the world during their map unit. They traveled to Washington, D.C., New York City, London, Hawaii, Greenland, the Great Wall of China, several different colleges, and even found Bluebonnet Elementary!
The latest version of Google Earth continues to set the mapping paradigm. Accessible enough for casual users, Google has added features that make it a necessity for those whose topographic desires are more serious. Although Google Ocean is the big newsmaker in version 5, you can also check out the surface of our nearest neighbor, Mars, as well as incorporating historical Earth maps.
Great job Mrs. Moerdyk.
