The Places We Will Go

  • Online Collaborative Project: The Places We Will Go tower
  • Grades: PreK-6th
  • Dates: April 13-May 8
  • Registration is open.
  • Description: JenuineTech is offering a great collaborative project this month that has students using Google Earth to locate a variety of landmarks around the world, and calculating the distance of these from their school.  Don’t let the Google Earth requirement intimidate you.  Jen provides a file that when opened in Google Earth has the landmarks tagged. She includes a tutorial on how to placemark your school and  use the ruler tool to measure the distances. Also, I am happy to help you in any way.
