This video tutorial and written documentation by Shamika Goddard demonstrates how to use Google Earth to create virtual tours of sites around the world. Students will learn how to customize each site’s appearance and configure the tour’s animation from place to place.

When you want to help students better understand religious and historical geography, an assignment like this can be a good tool for exploration and synthesis. In particular, these materials support Shamika Mapping the Reformation model assignment.
