Thing Seven

What I liked most about Google!
1. igoogle page - I liked Glenn's idea of using it as part of our morning routine at school. I love the Art of the Day and could use it for a writing activity. I want to tie in somehow someway to writing. Make a list of colors used. Make a list of adjectives to describe the picture etc...
2. Google Earth - I don't think I can say enough about GoogleEarth in this short post!! It is a never ending tool that can be used in so many ways. For my architecture planner we can go to visit the buildings... look at 3D representations so much better than a picture in a book. We can visit the tallest building in the world and look at the curvature of the Earth from the top. How amazing is that? That is just one idea... I have six planners and Google Earth will be used for all of them!
3. Google Docs is my new favorite!! What a great way for teachers to share and edit information. Instead of pasting and copying etc... just share the document. Love it. I will also use this with my writing group. We can share our work and the other writers can offer comments, edits and suggestions. I will be googling for some time.

  1. Can you think of a way to use it with your students?
