I’ve played around a little with Google Earth over the years, but haven’t really looked at it seriously. Since I may be teaching Geography to English Language Learners next year for the first time in awhile, though, I thought it was time for me to get more familiar with it.
I thought readers might be interested in the sites I’m finding helpful.
