This assignment is designed to explore and "visit" places that students may not actually to able to visit. Students are given an "itinerary" that guide them through the Google Earth program and the area of study! My students really enjoyed this activity because it changed the scenary for them (literally) and gave them a chance to explore things for themselves. This particular trip is centered around Africa (7th grade) but please feel free to use this as a template and change the locations for what you need! Enjoy!
