PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Night Google Earth is a high-engagement way to give an Introduction Tour of the geography of the novel's world. The first time I busted out Google Earth on the projector to introduce a unit, students were riveted. And they still are...every time.

We've filmed a YouTube video tutorial to acquaint you with the software.
