Google’s World Wonders Project

Boy, Google sure does put out neat projects. The most recent on my radar would be great for social studies and history teachers. It’s called Google World Wonders, and it gives the viewer virtual tours of historic sites throughout the world. Using Google Streetview images, you can virtually walk through architectural sites, ancient castles, and other wonders of the world. This would probably be great up on an interactive board (but give the pen to the kids, will you please? Let them do the touring.)

There are informational links, videos, resources and more about all of the sites being archived on the World Wonder site. Pretty darned neat.


Peace (in the world),
