GOOGLE LIT TRIPS

What are Google Lit Trips?

The term "Google Lit Trip" was coined by Jerome Burg, creator of the website www.googlelittrips.com. Jerome is a Literature teacher who found that using Google Earth to illustrate locations and settings to students increased their desire to read. Lit trips allow you to link literature with geography. His website now hosts dozens of "lit trips" that you can download and open using Google Earth.
