Google Earth is an Amazing tool to play around with, to view, to piece things together that you have not seen before in your life about our whole earth and even parts of our universe. Having google earth as a part of the computer system throughout a school is something that is overwhelming. If you don't have Google Earth in your school then I recomend that you get access to it and put it in your system. Both teachers and students are able to view images throughout all of the world including their own backyard. Google Earth has the ability to overlay streets/roads with latitude and longitude and even coordinates.
Here is an image from Google Earth that has a memory that I will never forget. This memory took place in a little community in The Sunshine Coast off Vancouver BC called Davis Bay. I went for a nice holiday to see family after finishing year 12 for five weeks. One of many events that occured was on the 1st of January I was Forced by my family to take part in an annual event called 'The Polar Bear Swim'. Now the 1st of January in Canada is not the middle of summer where I am from in Australia but the complete opposite. Being 0 degrees outside I swam in this ocean. What an experience! I've never Hyperventilated before in my Life. I've never not felt beat up before when looking at myself I knew I had been beaten up by nature. I never knew what it felt like not to breath properly for a number of weeks, and I never knew that being in that state of coldness, being put in a hot bath can make you colder. However, I also never knew what it was like breaking a record. I went away from that place with alot of memories and with my name up in the record books for that race.
