Since it is Geography Awareness Week I thought I’d pull a lesson plan from my archives to share with you.
On its own the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button provides a good way for students to discover new places. That said, students learn more through the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button if you give them a little more direction than just “click the button and look around.” That’s why I created a little question sheet to prompt students to do a little research about the places they discover in Google Earth via “I’m Feeling Lucky.” My question sheet can be found here as a Google Doc.
This short video demonstrates how students can explore Google Earth in more detail after clicking “I’m Feeling Lucky.”
