Recently, a high school teacher asked me about helping her create a Google Lit Trip using Google Earth. Since I hadn't tried that before, I first started by creating a trip relating to my life and all the places I have lived. I won't bore you with that here! Then, I decided to try it out with my 5th grade son to see if he could use it on a project. Here is what he did...(Note: I used Jing to capture it off of the computer for the movie. Normally the file would just open in Google Earth.)
I see this as a great way to integrate geography and literature with a. Students could create a lit trip for a book they read, add images and a summary of the story.
