    Using GoogleEarth in the Classroom [Blog Post] Using GoogleEarth in the Classroom GoogleEarth is a great tool for education (more than just hunting for your house and seeing if you can count the missing shingles from your roof). One great idea that I’ve passed on to a few of our teachers is using GoogleEarth as the starting point for creating Scavenger Hunts and WebQuests. Depending on grade level, student ability, and comfort level of the teacher these can be as simple or as complex as you want.
