I’m starting to use Google Earth more and more these days for different projects and presentations. So in addition to previous posts related to Google Earth, I was looking around for some resources today and happened onto the Pennsylvania Civil War Trails website.

So many integration ideas come to mind, I don’t know where to start. One for starters would be to have your kids explore the photos or the Google Earth locations and look for clues and write a narrative about what they are looking at.
So much to explore and so little time…let me know what you find.
