This activity is a fun and engaging way for your students to discover and explore world famous landmarks using Google Earth or other software. It provides a hands on approach to using latitude and longitude coordinates in Google Earth.

2 x Color Google Earth scavenger hunts.

Personally, I do a quick introduction lesson on Google Earth to familiarize the students with the software. I talk about latitude and longitude, and then let the students explore on their own. If I do not have enough devices, I buddy the students up (same if there is a student that struggles with it).
