8th Grade History Goes Global with Google Earth

8th grade United States History students in Ms. Pennington and Mr. Pedraza's classes recently used Google Earth to engage students in the battles of the American Revolution.  Students searched each battle of the Revolution as reporters taking notes of what occurred and why it was important to the war effort. Students were engaged because they were seeing exactly where battles had occurred in relation to where they were sitting in their classroom.  What an innovative way to give students ways to relate their experiences in the classroom to the real world!
