This is amazing! My students have so little understanding of geography and the world they live in, and this is an engaging way of helping them learn about our world. I love how this lesson includes reading, writing, social studies, and science, but it streamlined and does not include a lot of "fluff." I plan to look for more Google Earth lessons like this. I would love some PD on how to do this.
