Stratocam

Here is a quick post of a website that takes the best images from Google Earth and shares them in full screen.  Stratocam is a great way to share interesting aspects of our planet.  From cities, to deserts, to oceans, and everything in between.  A great activity would be to have students try and guess where the picture is on our planet by asking yes or no questions.  You can zoom out from the location as well.  The pictures are truly amazing.  A fun activity as a reward for elementary students or a way to test geography skills of middle and high school students.  See a sample image that I found while searching through them.
