Just a couple ways GoogleEarth has been used at SCSD:

A 5th grader created a .kmz file which layered his push-pin locations and his comments about the journey of Lewis and Clark onto GoogleEarth. The student narrated the tour to the class as he navigated through the landmarks and read the comments.

In Media Center, we combined the International Childrens Digital Library with a GoogleEarth tour. We traveled from Lakeview across the Pacific to the Philippines and back and then from Lakeview across the Atlantic to Croatia and back. The students loved seeing their school from the sky and zooming across the continent and ocean to another place where children also live and read books.
