Since I posted about the " 20 online museums for teachers and students " I received several emails with links, apps, tools and more tips related to educational virtual field trips. One of the links I got included this wonderful guide I am sharing with you below created by Silvia Rosenthal from Langwitches. The guide is about how to frame a virtual field trip using Google Earth.

Being able to frame your field trip enables you to take your students into an education virtual learning trip in which they will engage in authentic and experiential learning.

Silvia used Tour of Jacksonville, Florida as  an example of the virtual field trip you can create for your students. She also integrated some curriculum activities that go parallel with this virtual trip. Other things you will get to learn while framing your virtual field trip using Google Earth include :

How to Create a folder in Google Earth
How to add an image of a landmark or building
How to edit them  placemarks and many more.

I invite you to download this short guide and use it with your students.
