Break up the guided notes or give your class a kick start on a Monday/Friday with this fun Google Earth activity. Students will visit and explore several man-made, pre-colonial sites as well as natural wonders on the African continent. Students will visit and explore castles found in Gondar, Ethiopia, which has been long hailed as the "Camelot of Africa", churches in Lalibela and the tomb of Askia. Aside from man-made structures students will also take a trip to the incredible Victoria Falls, which has been compared by many to America's infamous Niagara Falls.

In this student-centered activity, students will use the geography of the land, images and articles embedded within Google Earth and their inductive analysis skills to make determinations about the civilizations and structures that flourished in pre-colonial Africa. This student centered, engaging resource has been such a fun way for me to teach the content of the African trading empires as well as the east African city-states. Students love getting to use their skills and drawing their own conclusions.
