In this one-time class, learners will be able to see remote and amazing geographical locations throughout the Earth. I will be including additional information about the locations and asking questions throughout, such as "which continent do you think this location is on" and "which country do you think this is in?" as well as other interactive questions. Many of these locations are considered the most scenic and/or amazing locations on the Earth. I will teach this class by encouraging...
-Students will visually explore the satellite and in-person photos of amazing geographic locations on Google Earth. -Students will use visual information to guess locations of the places. -Students will use visual and provided information about the locations to compare likelihood of visiting the location in person vs. visiting the location virtually. -Students will review/learn geographic vocabulary (ex- geyser).
