This is a fun 3-page exploration activity using Google Earth. Students will explore various geographic and environmental aspects of the region using a variety of layers within the program. Google Earth is a free download for any computer and is a great way to introduce students to GIS and GPS fundamentals, mapping, and grid lines on the Earth.
This activity assumes your students have a basic knowledge of the program and know how to navigate through it.
I also have a Latin America Google Earth Activity
My students love Google Earth and want to do it for every continent we cover in class!
