Last week, we learned about human and natural characteristics of the earth in our social studies lesson. This was a great lesson for us to explore Google Earth. We had used the app earlier in the year when we explored land forms in science, so the students were already familiar with it and they were excited to use it again.
Their job was to explore different parts of our community, state, country, and the world to find examples of human and natural characteristics. Then, they needed to find images of these characteristics and save them to a shared Google Drive folder. This would allow the students to share images when making their videos. Finally, we went into Animoto and added images and captions to create our movies. Here is one of our creations:
