A series of inquiry based lesson plans provided by Google Earth Education where teachers will use Google Earth Voyager Stories.

  • Teachers will present students with the inquiry, does human interaction with wild animals and their habitats help or hurt the animals?
  • Teachers will introduce three sources of information on the topic of human interaction with wild animals and their habitats.Students will work to identify and classify evidence from each source in one of two categories: “help” or “hurt”.After reviewing the evidence, students will form a hypothesis that they will share with the class.With each new source of information, students will add to their evidence chart and make adjustments to their hypothesis.
  • Finally, students will write an opinion essay using their final hypothesis as the claim and referring to specific evidence from the sources used.
