Bringing Far Away Places to Life
This week during third grade enrichment classes, students have been on the continent of Europe performing a variety of challenges. Today, in addition to their various paper resources and maps I placed Google Earth on the board. Suddenly students were at the Eiffel Tower. They were seeing views of pictures from the top, what it looked like to stand underneath it, what the geography of the city looked like around it. The exploration had a purpose, it was connected to their study....but it was also just FUN!
