Where in the World Are Your Book Characters?

Social distancing at home doesn’t mean we can’t travel the world a bit at the same time!

If your students or kids are reading books which take place in the real world, tools like Google Earth are a great way to explore the towns, landmarks, streets, and landscapes of where the characters are interacting. For historical fiction books, it’s also a great way to discuss how the satellite images may have looked different at the time of the story.

Suggested Ages: Grades 5-12
