Google Earth Lesson Plans

The lesson plans below are examples of how Google Earth can be used in social science/geography teaching and learning.  These were created by Social Science Education students at UNI as part of a class and cover a range of topics.  The Microsoft Word documents are the lesson plans themselves and the link below that is to a server that allows you to download the Google Earth .kml or .kmz file which will open on your computer in Google Earth.
