Product Description
The Great Gatsby 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, all my old sport learners were riveted. And they still are...every time.

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

What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

♥ This IS the unit for Gatsby. Vocabulary in context is great. Couldn't do Gatsby without this!

♥ Absolutely, hands-down best resource I have gotten so far! My senior class loved The Great Gatsby and the different activities and resources throughout this unit binder helped with the students' better understanding of the author's purpose and the roaring 20s. Great great resource!

♥ This was an incredible resource to use in my 10th grade classroom. Thank you for such a thorough and engaging unit! I plan on buying more form you in the future!!!

♥ I love all of your products! I have purchased several in the past and just recently bought a couple more for this upcoming school year! Thanks so much for your awesomeness!
