Utiliser Google Earth pour cartographier l'itinéraire de personnages de fiction, afin de mêler géographie et littérature.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Google Earth is a great teaching tool for geographers, but it is also a way to bring geography and spatial thinking to other disciplines. Google Lit Trips makes the journeys that take place in literature (both fiction and non-fiction) all the more real by mapping out the movements as a KML file that can be viewed in Google Earth. By embedding pictures, websites, videos and text into the path, this becomes an incredibly interactive resource for teachers of all levels.

30-second animation of the changes in U.S. historical county boundaries, 1629 - 2000. Historical state and territorial boundaries are also displayed from 178...
I am interested in US History and watching the creation of the boundaries with the year that they were created gives a lot of insight into the people and population of that time. Also the rate of change in size from year to year gives insight into the economic and political status of the country at that time. This is a great clip to watch even if just to see how much the country has physically changed over time.
I love animation maps. Great for getting students interested in learning.
