Planet in Action – Games Using Google Earth

Planet In Action is a fun website that features three games based on Google Earth. All three games utilize Google Earth imagery and navigation. The three games are Ships, Places, and Moon Lander. In “Places” you navigate, from a helicopter view, five popular places including the Grand Canyon. In “Ships” you become the captain of a fleet of ships to navigate famous ports of call. And in “Moon Lander” you take control of the Apollo 11 moon lander and guide the “Eagle” to touch-down.

Applications for Education
The Planet in Action games could be a fun way to introduce students to Google Earth. The games could also be used by students to view places dynamically rather than statically.
