Google Earth Science

This is just pure smut, for the likes of me:

Designing and Creating Earth Science Lessons with Google EarthTM

It's like . . . . oooh. I'll be in my bunk.


I'd love to sit with a patient child or adult, with Google Earth, and talk about what it illustrates. It reminds me of lying on the floor over the atlases, when I was little.

Another great resource for the classroom geoscience/geography teacher is earthcaching - think of it as the educational branch of geocaching)(http://earthcache.org/)
PS - I'm one of the authors of the Google Earth Manual you linked to.

Yeah, this is great service. However, the quality of photo-layers extremely differs. While in Rome you can see even shadows of individual humans - in other ares only general picture is available:(
