One of my projects for this month was working with 7th graders in Mrs. Jensen's class at East Middle School to build Google Tours of Montana places. Tour Builder is a new way to show people the places using Google Earth. It lets you pick the locations right on the map, add in photos, text, and video, and then share your creation. Students were required to include five Montana cities, three reservations, and two other places/landmarks of their choice in their tour. They also had to tell a little about each place and include pictures that tourists might be interested in seeing/hearing about the places. Not only did students get to expand their technology skills, but they also learned quite a lot about Montana along the way!
Check out some of their tours:
