Google Earth (GE) surely ranks as one of the most significant educational computer applications ever created; it has the potential to be a highly impactful teaching and learning tool for all K-12 subject areas, and will heighten your student's level of global awareness. This powerful educational resource can be used in secondary disciplines such as geography, social studies, math, science, and language arts, as well as at the elementary school level.
The foundation of GE is its database of satellite images - covering our entire planet, and beyond - that provides the ability to scrutinize Earth’s surface, its ocean floors, Mars, the Moon, and the heavens.
Additionally, there are numerous websites that contain GE lesson plans to help teachers access and share ideas about using GE in the classroom. Examples of topics that can be explored with GE - both quantitatively and qualitatively - include global warming, economics, natural resources, population trends, endangered species, weather and climate, agriculture, mapping, measuring, the oceans, plate tectonics, astronomy, planetary science, and more.
