Math Trail Powered by Google Maps, these exciting trails take you to locations connected by a theme. Students must use an email address and then they can choose the level of difficulty. This game combines map skills, knowledge of geography, and of course, math skills.
This website is designed for educators who wish to extend the concepts of the math curriculum beyond the pages of the text. Google Earth is the dynamic tool that will be used to accomplish this. Google Earth provides startling clear satellite views of the globe in an interactive 3D environment. Beyond the visual, users can add placemarks, annotations, photos, and models, as well as measure distances and draw paths.
Within this site you will find lesson ideas, examples, and downloads for mathematics that embrace active learning, constructivism, and project-based learning while remaining true to the standards.
Doodle for Google 2012
Doodle 4 Google invites K-12 students to express the theme–”If I could
travel in time, I’d visit…”–as creatively as possible using Google’s
logo as their canvas. This year’s winner, along with having his or her
doodle featured on our homepage for a day, will take home a $30,000
college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. And
as an added bonus, the winning Doodle will be featured on a special
edition of Crayola’s 64 box! We hope you’ll get everyone in on the fun
(but please — just one doodle per child!). All submissions must be
postmarked by March 20th and received by March 23rd so there’s not a
moment to wait!
Google understands the importance of finding the right information at the right
time. We create tools to let you find the information you need, of the kind you
need, when you need it. In most cases, a simple search works really well. But
for more specialized questions, a bit of instruction in how to search improves
all searcher–from middle school students to trained professionals–and lets you
discover and use more, higher quality sources than ever before.

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.”
