In this lesson the students use Google Expeditions at the start of the lesson, to look at a series of waterfalls around the globe and find common features. Once these have been identified the students can move on to learn about the formation of a waterfall.

Google Expeditions is a virtual reality teaching tool that lets you lead or join immersive virtual trips all over the world. Built for the classroom and small group use, Google Expeditions allows a teacher acting as a “guide” to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out interesting sights along the way.
