Some great ready made resources for the classroom...

A TWITTER tip off via NavTeq
There are a whole series of resources to aid teachers looking at using Google Earth in the classroom. They have been made available by Carlton College.
This is the LANDING PAGE with the details on teaching with Google Earth.

One of the most impressive looking resources is one on the North West PASSAGE.

Undergraduate students use Google Earth and information from several web sites to investigate some of the consequences of climate change in polar regions, including the shrinking of the ice cap at the North Pole, disintegration of ice shelves, opening of shipping routes, effects on polar bears, and possible secondary effects on climate in other regions due to changes in ocean currents. 

A full list of activities HERE.

Nice work and many thanks for making these available !
