Engage your students in world geography by taking a world tour on Google Earth and visiting famous landmarks for each unit studied in world geography (7th grade...although fun activity for any grade). This 6-slide PowerPoint includes:
1) student 2-sided worksheet for completing VTS strategy SEE/THINK/WONDER as they view places on Google Earth (one per unit in seventh grade world geography), and locations/landmarks (for example, the Ka'bah in Mecca and the pyramids in Egypt),
2) Making Connections slide (for students to connect what they see in the world tour to their lives, to text, to media or to world, and
3) a list of places to visit & Navigation help in Google Earth for teachers visiting each place in this activity on the big screen.
This is a great way to build intrigue at the beginning of the year in World Geography or World History class! Enjoy!
