Geographers on the Job

As it is Geography Awareness Week this week, it’s a good time to use Google Earth in your classroom. For Geography Awareness Week, The Google Earth Blog has 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.
