What is Google Tour Builder?
Google Tour Builder is a Google tool, which leverages Google Earth technology to allow users to create a story using geographic locations.  With Tour Builder, students use location and place to tell a story or to better convey the details of a literary work.

Here are a few examples of Google Tour Builder from across the curriculum:
The American Revolution
Ancient Egypt

Martin MacIntylre’s classes recently used this tool to explore Rivers within the US.  Here are a few examples:
Rio Grande
Snake River
Sacramento River
