Perform mathematical calculations across the world in projects such as Measures in Madrid and Shapes in Paris.  Map plant and animal life, follow the migration of whales and monarch butterflies and explore landforms.  Visit historical landmarks and use Google historic imagery to view change over time.  Engage your students in ways you never thought possible with The Google “World at Your Fingertips.” This offering is aligned to the ISTE Standards, The Illinois Social Science Standards for Geography, and the CPS Framework for Teaching Components: 1a, 1d, 3c and 3e.
