Google Earth has many features to help you and your students leave the classroom and learn about exciting places with a virtual travel experience anywhere in the world. This is a great way to build community, honor other cultures and provide fun, interactive learning. It is the perfect addition to any curriculum to gain student attention and interest.

Build Your Own Virtual Field Trip With Ease

Help your students go on a historical journey, visit locations from a book, or even tour famous landmarks. You are in the driver's seat with Google Earth's sharable Project creation tool. Students can even create their own sharable projects saved directly to Google Drive.

Google Earth Has Curated Guided Tours Too!

Google Earth's Voyager is a showcase of interactive guided tours, quizzes, and layers that aim to help educate everyone about the world, locations near and far. By clicking the ship's wheel icon on Google Earth, you’ll circumnavigate the globe with the Hōkūleʻa using stars, track hurricanes and tropical storms in real time, and find place-based stories authored by partners such as National Geographic and HHMI Biointeractive. Voyager’s curated stories weave in rich media, such as 360 videos and Street View, allowing us to learn about Earth from a new perspective.
