I've been working with 2nd and 3rd grade students on learning about communities. We looked at Google Earth and identified characteristics of urban, suburban and rural communities. We decided we were a rural area and went out and took photos of the area and uploaded to Panorimo, they will now show up in Google Earth.
Anyways, the kids are so excited when they see that other people have "viewed" their photos, every morning they want check first thing.
So I thought if I could get you guys to view them, they'd be stoked.
Even better, leave a comment on a photo. You can sign in with your Google Acct.

Thanks

I looked at them all. Some of those shots looked like a ghost town. Pretty cool for them though. Why did the Deere pic not make it for google maps?

If you click on a photo, you can see the map. We also learned coordinates and the compass rose.

It's funny, most of these kids have not been to a city bigger than 40,000, except for some who have been to Las Vegas. When we use Google Earth and tour New York they are amazed. They love exploring on Google Maps.
The whole concept of taxis, mass transportation, highrises is foreign!

Oops, we will have to fix that! Some are the old town, used to be a very popular railroad stop in the day.

Ties into a post I just made on my FB page. Sometimes small towns are better. Check out the real event that took place in Philly called the Naked Bike Ride. I tried to blur the one clown that had his member hanging out. I love the city but with it comes all the "culture".

Thanks guys! I saw one comment on the water tower, which is great, cause now they will want to learn more about that building, it is just a small "shed" that houses the pump and provides shelter. This area used to be a poplar stop for the wealthy train travelers heading to California. They would stay here.
