Product Description
This PDF lesson presentation asks students to see the Earth's surface from a new perspective. Using iPads & the Google Earth app, students explore the Earth's surface looking for interesting color, texture, & patterns. After students find an interesting image to use as creative inspiration, they use the iPad's photo editing tools to abstract the Google Earth photo. Students complete the project by creating a watercolor painting of what they see.

The PDF format can be printed as a lesson guide to teach from, or as a slideshow to help students along the way.
