Dann, Tammy
Learning Languages, v15 n2 p22-23 Spr 2010
Google Earth is a computer program that allows users to view the Earth through satellite imagery and maps, to see cities from above and through street views, and to search for addresses and browse locations. Many famous buildings and structures from around the world have detailed 3D views accessible on Google Earth. It is possible to explore the sky, Mars, and the moon through Google Earth and historical views allow users to see changes to places on Earth over time. Google Earth is a free resource any school can download. Google Earth creates a better foundation for insightful discussions about cultural perspectives and practices in Iowa and Spain. This article describes how the author used Google Earth in her third grade community unit to bring an understanding of different parts of the Spanish-speaking world to students.
