Description

Tour the Eiffel Tower with Google Earth (03:15)

Make a virtual field trip to one of Europe’s most famous landmarks; the Eiffel Tower. You will be using Google Earth to watch an aerial tour of the iconic French structure.

The product includes a document of 15 talking points and interesting facts about the famous tourist attraction.

It provides 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, “2:36 – 2:49 – You are now looking directly at the monument from atop the Champ de Mars. You can see the tower’s three floors, which each house a restaurant. Believe it or not, a few pilots have actually flown planes through the lower arches. A famous WWII American pilot, named William Overstreet Jr., chased a Nazi pilot through the arches and shot him down as he was exiting the tower.”

You will also receive a folder entitled “Spherical Panorama photos of the Eiffel Tower.” This folder contains files that will take you to real world panoramic “street view” photographs of the building and its surroundings. *These were not taken by me and are not to be considered a part of the product. They are only included to help you organize and view the site better.

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.
