Google Earth Education: Grades 6-8 Passport Warm Ups
Teachers can use I’m Feeling Lucky and Street View in Google Earth to randomly select a location in the world and relate it to multiple content areas. Teachers can also choose to preselect a location that lends itself well to relevant standards and objectives using Search or Voyager Stories.
• Passport Warm Up is an engaging daily routine in which students review geography, math, science, social studies, ELA and current events objectives.
• This activity is designed to be independent practice for students that requires minimal to no direct instruction on the part of the teacher.
• Teachers can choose from the standards based example questions listed below, or use them as inspiration to generate their own questions.
• To stay within the 15 minute time frame, teachers should use 1-2 questions per subject.
