Welcome Google Sky!
The makers of Google Earth have unleashed their latest creation: Google Sky, which is available within the newest version of Google Earth. Basically, it is just like Google Earth, but the camera is pointed to the sky. Head over to their website to see the latest features. Google Sky allows you to see planets, starts, the moon, constellations, galaxies, and the atmosphere. Using this program with an interactive whiteboard will allow students to interact with the program for a hands-on activity. Google Earth continues to add features that make it a powerful teaching tool to help students visualize the enormous size of our planet and space. Check it out!
