Can I announce to world and cry from the rafters how great Google Earth is? An amazing free program that is easy to download and shows satellite images of the entire earth. There's even Google Mars. In our classroom, we use it a lot when we're talking about different areas or countries.
Yesterday, after we got over the thrill of seeing our houses here in Frenchboro, we went looking for deserts all over the world. We saw sand dunes, even an oasis or two, and were amazed by just how much of the land on earth is covered with deserts.
