This is a great idea for critical thinking, defending ideas, and collaborating. It would be interesting to see how different the ideas would be for Grade 3 and the middle or high school grades. Thanks for sharing.

A very original and effective way of using google earth to describe the planet's main features. Getting the students to make a top ten list is a great idea!

I am excited about using this as a class project the last two weeks of school. The students will be engaged and they will be able to demonstrate to me how much they have learned this last year.
The plan is also well written and the procedures are so carefully laid out. GREAT JOB! Thank you for sharing this!
