I just found this post on a Discovery Educator Network page. There are tips for using Google Earth in your classroom. Since this GE is free, try it out and you can add your ideas to their list! If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will be able to download several .pdf files. We are taking a family trip to England for a wedding. I was able to put in our starting point in the UK and a tourist location we want to visit, and GE plotted out the directions. But the BEST part was that it allowed me to "fly" the route exactly as the directions stated. That was really fun. Imagine what you could have your classes create! How about the route of George Washington as his soldiers went from Valley Forge to Philadelphia.
