Weekend Website #10: Google Mars

Posted by on November 7, 2010

Drop by every weekend to discover what wonderful website my classes and parents loved this week. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of yours as they are of mine. google mars

Age:

First grade and up–homeschoolers, students, computer lab, classroom

Topic:

Space, geography, history, research

Address:

Google Mars

Review:

If you have Google Earth, you can access this from the downloaded software for Google Earth. It’s under the satellite tool: But, the software version doesn’t have all of the neat stuff that comes online, like built-in regions, spacecraft, stories and more. What it doesn’t have that the software version has is the ability to fly a plane (using Google Earth’s built-in Flight Simulator) all over Mars. My students love this. I didn’t teach it to them at all. They were curious, motivated and figured it out on their own. I love student-led activities.
