Description

Tour Stonehenge with Google Earth (03:15)

Make a virtual field trip to one of Europe’s most famous landmarks; Stonehenge. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of this ancient site. The trip lasts for 3 minutes and 15 seconds.

The product also includes…

1. A PowerPoint that illustrates the names, locations, and information about the different stones that comprise Stonehenge.

2. A document of about 15 talking points and interesting facts about the mysterious landmark is also included.

3. A pdf that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at.

For example, the document says at, “:52 – :1:05 – The camera gets even closer to Stonehenge pausing above the site. The stones are in the center. The dark circle that a manmade path crosses over is the original henge. The faded and light colored path that comes in from the northeast and enters the henge is the original Avenue. The Heel Stone is located along the avenue. It is the white dot that can be seen right near the highway.”

The tour begins with a view of Europe from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a few different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of Stonehenge’s location and its physical relationship to the surroundings. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of Europe.

To watch, all you have to do is click on the file, Google Earth will open and you will be taken on a short trip to the World Heritage site. * Your computer must have Google Earth to watch these tours.
