Google Earth's Timeline, if you haven't discovered that feature will allow you to compare and contrast imagery from an area from the present 2010/11 to 1993-1995 images.  Click the 'clock' button and a timeline that you can slide to the past appears.  Nice historical possibilities with this option.

Google Earth in the Classroom

Google Earth is a free, downloadable application that combines
satellite imagery, maps, 3D terrain and 3D buildings to create a
highly realistic virtual globe. Teachers and students can create
their own virtual tours and share them with others. They can
explore content developed by organizations such as NASA,
Discovery Education, Jane Goodall and others. In addition,
Google Earth now allows students and teachers to turn their
gaze upward to explore the night sky in staggering detail.
