This book is amazing! No matter what content area you teach, this book is for you! It comes in 3 versions, depending on your grade level, so make sure to get the best one for your students. The print book also comes with a CD, which is nice. Reading this is basically like taking an online course..this book includes everything you need - instructions for the teacher, how-to guides, fun facts, tips, glossary of terms, diagrams, screenshots, answer keys, recommended literature, and pre-made lessons for all content areas, complete with extension activities!! I could go on and on! This book is jam-packed with resources; in no time at all your students will become world explorers, all from the comfort of your classroom. The possibilities are endless, and I highly recommend this book! Bon Voyage!

I really enjoy this book. I like that it covers a variety of content areas and can be used with multiple grade levels. The bonus is that I don't have to create the activities on my own and my students are getting to know how to use Google Earth in a fun and engaging way. The lessons provide meaningful ways to integrate technology while teaching students about our world.

Awesome book! I'd been looking for something like this and the price was reasonable, and it's a one-time purchase instead of a subscription. Thank you!
