Mount Rushmore with Google Earth Tours

Mount Rushmore with Google Earth Tours

Tour Mount Rushmore with Google Earth ToursMake a virtual field trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota and visit Mount Rushmore. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of the world famous landmark. Learn all about the giant sculpture and its interesting history. The product includes a document of about 30 talking points and interesting facts about the historic 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. For example the document says at, “2:23 – 2:36 – The camera zooms in even closer.a. Behind the four heads there is a cave. The cave is called the “Hall of Records” and it houses a vault.b. The vault contains copies of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, a history of the monument, biographies of the presidents and more.c. The idea behind the hall is to provide information to future civilizations, which have long forgot about us, about Mount Rushmore and the United States. d. It is currently inaccessible to the public.The tour begins with a view of North America from outer space. You are then brought closer above the U.S., next above South Dakota, and finally the camera zooms down to the monument and flies around 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, as well as, its physical relationship to its surroundings. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of North America.* Your computer must have Google Earth to watch these tours.Feel free to visit some other famous landmarks in North America.1. The Golden Gate Bridge (3:29)2. Chichen Itza (5:38)3. Niagara Falls (2:10)4. Panama Canal (3:02)5. Statue of Liberty (2:07)6. Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri (1:06)6.
