Reflection: Joy Where in the world is... a Trickster Tale!: Making Cultural Connections to Folktales - Section 3: Experience Learning


I was so excited to share this lesson with my students, as I incorporated the use of Google Earth into our learning about folktales!  I don’t know about your class, but in my classroom, students are always so excited to see what technology we incorporate and so this lesson lends itself perfectly to introducing Google Earth if you haven’t already!  Try it out, and watch your students become instantly engaged!
