Google Earth Classroom Applications

After playing around with Google Earth over the past week, I am truly amazed! There are so many ways that I will be able to incorporate this technology into my classroom. I found many data sets through Google Earth Gallery including two that focus on threatened and endangered species. These applications provide an easy way for us to see where these species can be found on the planet and they include pictures along with a detailed fact sheet for each species. Here are the links if you are interested:
ARKive Endangered Species
Edge Existence

  1. I am amazed at Google Earth too but I worry about using it for biology. I don't want to choose something because it is fun and amazing so thanks for the gallery links, they give me some ideas for the environment unit.
