Google – Sketch Up, Scholar, Lit Trips


Posted by jenmalonetn | Posted in Google, Search Engines, STEM Resources | Posted on October 13, 2011



Google Sketch Up is a free amazing drawing/3D site for students to use in a variety of educational settings.

Google Scholar is a search engine for the high school or college students looking for research through journals and scholarly primary sources.

Google Lit Trips allows students to travel along beside characters and walk the path they walked by working with Google maps. From the site:  ” I like to say Google Lit Trips “3-dimensionalize” the reading experience by placing readers “inside the story” traveling alongside the characters; looking through the windshield of that old jalopy in The Grapes of Wrath or waddling alongside Mr. and Mrs. Mallard’s duckling family in Make Way for Ducklings.”
