Google Earth Education

The world is ever changing. We want to adapt education to encourage exploration, inquiry, and engagement. Google Earth Education concentrates on how Google Earth and other Google tools can infuse geospatial thinking into all subject matter types, transforming fundamental learning and life skills in students, and educators, everywhere.

Follow the link https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/earth/education/resources/ to find many pre-made resources that can be used as bellringers or integrated into a lesson.  Google Earth isn’t just for geography classes; there are lessons that will relate to math, social studies, ELA, science and more.
