Where in the World? A Google Earth Game

Where in the World?! is a great game for students to identify places around the world. Each picture gives you three choices which can spure discussion. Do you notice a lot of green boxes in the picture? What could it be? Cities? Farms? Which country do you suppose has lots of open farming areas? 

As neat as this project is it would be very cool to create your own game using your local community. Taking simple screen shots and posting them to a class website or community would be relatively simple Have students guess the location based off your previous discussions! This would even be a great quick activity when students come to class or a daily blog post. Students could even make up their own game using photos of their favorite places
