Google Earth for Local History

Oct 14, 2015 by

Google Earth has a Historical Imagery tool that allows users to see past images of areas of the Earth.  You can use this tool to show students what progress looks like in your local area.  You can also show students the effects of progress by looking at areas of deforestation and over population.

For more practical strategies like this, order your copy of Teaching the Last Backpack Generation: A Mobile Technology Handbook for Secondary Educators.
