Happy Earth Day!


Earth Day is a great time to learn a little bit more about our amazing planet. While there are tons of resources that are out there, I would like to highlight just a few.

1. Live Google+ Hangout Today: In lieu of Earth Day, National Geographic is hosting a Live Google+ Hangout at 12:00 p.m. about chasing deadly storms, studying life on the Great Barrier Reef, and monitoring Earth from the sky. It will focus on how technology allows explorers to go to new extremes and discover more about our world.

What do you want to ask them? Post your questions below using #OurEarth or upload them to YouTube. You may even be invited to ask your questions live.

2. Google Earth Resources and Tutorials. Check out one of the latest blog post, What on (Google) Earth? on The Digital Learning Series to find out how to use Google Earth as a powerful learning tool in many different subject areas.

3. NASA Earth As Art: This is a beautiful collection of satellite images taken from NASA to show just how Earth can be represented as art. You can also download the free app or download the PDF eBook.

Have fun exploring and investigating our home that we call Earth!
