Using Google Earth and Explain Everything to teach the Civil War

Here’s a tutorial for teachers, or for anyone who seeks to explain Civil War topics to others. It uses Google Earth and an application called Explain Everything to create presentations to help illustrate battles and troop movements. This is very useful.

The video’s description reads, “A quick movie to show how you can use Google Earth and Explain Everything to teach the Civil War. Here I have taken a screen shot from Google Earth and loaded it into Explain Everything. From there you can have students research aspects of the battle and then create a movie to outline what they learned.”
