A Great email came to me that told me about Space Lesson Plans with Google Sky. Even as a Google Certified Teacher, I am good at Google Earth, but l ill prepared to use Google Sky and this resource without a plan.
This lesson plan is good for Grades 3 and up with guidance. I think the middle schoolers will really love the idea! Rebecca has done a great job with this lesson plan. Take the time to work to learn these excellent resources used with Google Earth. You need to have the latest version (Which you can get here.)
