Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator is a FREE web-based tool lets you build a VR ‘tour’ using Google Street View imagery and the bonus is that you can even add your own 360 photos, if you have that available. The interface is designed with educators and pupil in mind and is all simply drag-and-drop. The flexibility of tour creator is that you can choose any points of interest within the Google Street View maps and add extra texts, or points of interest if you like. With the Virtual Tour you can save any tour you have made and also publish it, for public or private use. The ability to import tours to the Google Expeditions app is not available yet but will be very soon states Google. Being able to create an Expedition and share it with a classroom of pupils is a great opportunity for technology being able to bring people closer, to understand other people worlds. Not every pupil will need a VR headset as this can be created and used on a laptop attached to an interactive whiteboard, but for those that are lucky enough to have a class set the sense of immersion and engagement would be outstanding I think. This presentation informs you what Google Tour Creator is and I have created a simple model that can be used to show pupils as an example.

How can the Favelas be improved? Trumps Game - Teach Me Geography

How can the Favelas be improved? Trumps Game - Teach Me Geography

Aim: This is a fun and competitive TRUMPS GAME that explores issues relating to improving living conditions in favela areas of Brazil, helping students to focus on a variety of social, economic and environmental challenges that rapid urbanisation and migration has brought to the poorest areas of the city. Although this resource is based within the slum or shanty settlements of Brazil, the content within it is just as applicable to any poorer urban area of low income countries. Learning Objectives: To research what life is like for people who live in the favelas of Brazil. To analyse a range of different ways that favelas can be improved to make them better for everyone. To evaluate what is the best way to improve living standards in poorer urban areas of low income countries. This resource includes: A set of 20 beautifully designed, full colour .pdf gamecards, ready to be printed out back-to-back and used straight away. A set of 7 3x3 full-colour .pdf gamecards, ready to be printed out single sided and used straight away. A beautifully designed, full colour .pdf worksheet to be used to collect information and analyse information about improving living standards in the favela both during and after play. A full colour .pdf rules and teaching ideas sheet to be displayed on a screen during the lesson, or printed out and used with the playing groups. All of our resources have been tried and tested by teachers in a variety of classroom environments - they have also been regularly rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and other review bodies. And remember, it is always better to Like, Share and Review!

Country Factfile Flags

Country Factfile Flags

Pupils research a country for basic information. 2 per page. Draw flag on the back. I used these for First Level (P2/3) with an atlas and online websites. Suggestions for use: Print on card so the research can be recorded one side and pupils can draw the flag of the country on the other. Then attach paper straws to one side to make a 'flag' for a great display!

China's Climate

China's Climate

As China is such a large country it’s not surprising to find that the climate varies from place to place and that these variations have different impacts of people’s lives. These worksheets help students to understand climate graphs, how to read ad draw them. They also give them a chance to develop their own graph and peer mark eachothers ideas with supporting comments.

Who Lives In The City?

Who Lives In The City?

Brazil’s cities are renowned for their rich/poor divide. Favelas, the term used in Brazil for the shanty towns, have grown up on the outskirts of urban areas since the late 19th century. The people who arrive in the city are usually very poor. They have come from the countryside believing the city will be a better place to live providing them with jobs, money and a brighter future for their families. These worksheets put the students in these people shoes and have them try to make the difficult decisions poor people in Brazil, as well as other countries, have to make about moving, once moved and dealing with their choices.

The Roman Colosseum with Google Earth Tours

The Roman Colosseum with Google Earth Tours

Tour the Roman Colosseum with Google Earth Tours Make a virtual field trip to the Roman Colosseum, one of the planet’s most famous landmarks. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of the ancient arena and it’s neighboring structures. Making cameo appearances on the trip are the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Vatican and the Spanish Steps, to name just a few. The product includes a document of about 25 interesting facts about the tourist attraction. The tour is also accompanied by a PDF file that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at. 1. For example the document says at, “1:05 – 1:18 – You are brought directly above the Colosseum. a. The area to the west of the Colosseum is the Roman Forum with Palatine Hill just south of the forum. i. The Roman Forum was the political and spiritual center of the ancient Roman Empire for centuries. Now it is an incredible archaeological site open to the public where you can see many ancient buildings, temples, basilicas, and more. ii. According to Roman legend, the sons of the god Mars, Romulus and Remus, were raised on Palatine Hill and founded Rome here.” The tour begins with a view of Europe from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a variety of different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of the structure’s location within Rome, as well as, its physical relationship to other famous landmarks in its vicinity. To watch, all you have to do is click on the file, Google Earth will open and the tour will start. Feel free to visit some other famous landmarks in the Americas. 1. The Golden Gate Bridge 2. Chichen Itza 3. Niagara Falls 4. Panama Canal 5. Statue of Liberty 6. Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri 7. Mount Rushmore 8. Machu Picchu 9.
