Geography Awareness Week – Geographers on the Job

Last week I posted some resources for teachers about Geography Awareness Week. Now that Geography Awareness Week is here, the Google Earth Blog has posted some good KMZ files to use in your classroom. The one that I particularly like is Geographers on the Job.

Applications for Education
Geographers on the Job is full of placemarks that explain the types of work done by Geographers. This Google Earth tour is a great way for students to see the many uses of geography beyond the traditional jobs of cartography, surveying, and teaching.
