In my third grade class, we are learning about geography and my students got so excited when I showed them the "Street View" on Google Maps. I created this independent activity for them to explore different places around the world. They type in the place, record the country and continent, and make one (or more!) observations about that place. I made sure there was at least one place from each continent. There is a place for their own address, their school's address (if you provide it), and also one spot for them to choose a place of their own if they have time. At the end, I added a reflection about which place they would choose to travel to and why. Have fun!
