Stevenson and Yoav – Geography Google Earth Assignment

We were working with Ms. Papernick and her grade 9 geography class.

We were told to create a geography project that would incorporate their current unit which was ecozones and technology. So we created a project that would have the students creating their own province/ territory which would have the same characteristics of the ecozone that you were given. The students would also have to submit a description as to why they picked that spot and the relative characteristics between the two provinces’ ecozones. The students would then have to create at least three cities and describe the three cities’ major industry and the reason. The project was successful and the students understood the concept really fast.

We used Google Earth for the entire project.

This could probably be only used in this class because it was created for specifically this class. But Google Earth can be used for other social science classes.
