Once you download the .pdf, you will find a link on the second page that you can use to access the editable template. Once you open the template, be sure to click “file” - “make a copy.” This will give you your own editable copy to use freely. Feel free to make as many copies of the template as you’d like for your students.
This fun activity involves children using Google Earth to find a variety of places or things around the world. They aren’t specific places per se, but generally places. Examples include a football stadium, cactus, iceberg etc. The idea of having generic places and things to find is that the children generally aren’t able to just do a text search. They have to actively seek and find! Children can either using a snipping tool or PrtSc (Print Screen) to save a picture of the place/thing or they could provide the coordinates of their find. This could either work as an individual competition - see who can find all the places in the quickest time. Or it could be done as a collective effort - the whole class working to find the different places before the time runs out. I hope your children enjoy it as much as mine did!

Tour the Panama Canal with Google Earth (03:02) Make a virtual field trip to one of North America’s most famous landmarks. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded video tour of the Panama Canal, which connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The video lasts for 3 minutes and 2 seconds. The product includes a document of 27 talking points and interesting facts about one of the modern wonders of the world. It also provides a PDF 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. • For example the document says at 1 minute and 5 seconds – “1:05 – Pause here to get a view of the Gatun Locks and the manmade Gatun Lake just beyond. At the time of its construction, the large body of water was the largest manmade lake in the world.” The tour begins with a view of North America from outer space. You are then zoomed to the Atlantic side’s entrance near the city of Colon. You will visit the three famous locks: Gatun Locks, Pedro Miguel Locks, and Miraflores Locks. You will fly above Gatun Lake, travel down the Chagres River towards the Bridge of the Americas as you enter the Pacific, and much more. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of North America. To watch, all you have to do is click on the file and you will be taken on the three-minute tour of the “big ditch”. * Your computer must have Google Earth to watch these tours. Feel free to visit some other famous landmarks in North America. 1. The Grand Canyon (1:37) 2. The Golden Gate Bridge (1:46) 3. Chichen Itza (1:36) 4. Niagara Falls (1:21) 5. Panama Canal (3:02) 6. Statue of Liberty (2:07) 7. Ole Faithful in Yellowstone National Park (1:26) 8. Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri (1:06) These tours work great with social studies lessons about famous landmarks, maps, landforms, cardinal directions, etc. Here are a few links to some helpful tutorials on how to use Google Earth.

This is a step by step method of how to use Google sheets to make a translator. I've made it as child friendly as possible and have used it with my Y4s with less detail than this and they have been able to do the task well. I believe it's a fun way of getting the children to understand how to use Sheets and Excel. It should help them to understand how to use a simple formula, and to change that formula to produce a different result.
