Lesson plans, kmz's, and tutorials, that have been lined up with standards, are available!! 7. Eliminates the need of flat, wall maps. 6. Bring the locale of a book to life by use of tours.

10 Reasons Why 5. Make the world a smaller place. Create placemarks of family members, pals, etc. 4. Ability to turn ANY lesson (geography, history, literature) into a more engaging and memorable experience. 3. Pre-Visit your upcoming field trip including distance and directions. 2. Latitude and Longitude coordinates take on much more meaning and understanding. 1. Visit locations (both present and past -- on earth and in space) that you and your students will probably never see in a lifetime.
