How great is Google Earth? If you’ve never used this amazing tool, then I highly encourage you to download the app and start today!
Go to the Lourvre, the Colosseum, the Parthenon, the Pyramids at Giza, the Empire State Building, or Ground Zero. (I used Google Earth on September 11 to visit the memorials…what a great way to discuss what happened on that day!)
I briefly discussed Google Earth in my Essential iPad Apps post, and I hope to highlight this awesome app more below!
