Google Earth Time Travel Trips
7th Graders in Lynchburg City Schools conduct historical research, analyze their findings, and summarize information. Using Google Earth, they create visual representations of historical events and deliver oral presentations, demonstrating what they have learned. Their projects can be found on two pages within this site:

 1)  Famous Explorers and Voyages
 2)  Historical Events
Historical Events - Page Two
These historical projects were created by first six weeks Time Travel students.
