Google Earth

We use Google all of the time. All of the time. We google berry cobbler with cake mix. (Lazy that day.) And we've googled Cyber Hunt and deja vu (check out the how stuff works link)

But our family is now transfixed with Google Earth. We've zoomed in on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor and then flown over to the Pyramids in Egypt and the Forbidden City in Beijing. Then we popped over to the Chicago area to see our oldest's backyard and her sister's dorm room on the other end of the state. It's very addictive and a wonderful geography lesson. You can make some serious inroads in looking at the historical aspects of the terrain.
Check it out! It's in Beta version but you can download it for free.
