Thoughts and Ideas from a Classroom Teacher

Google World Wonders Project

on June 3, 2012

Are you looking for an awesome project for your students that will let them virtually explore some of the world’s greatest wonders? Look no further than the Google World Wonders Project. It ties together educational resources, lesson plans, activities, videos and Google Earth footage for sites such as Independence Hall, the Palace of Versailles, and Ancient Kyoto. They have even included teachers’ guides that are geared for secondary, but they could easily be adapted to the 3-5 classroom. I can’t wait to spend some time here this summer and to get my boys playing on the site as well!
