Google Lit Trips
A really cool idea using Google Earth is to take students on tours of literature. Google Lit Trips focuses on individual books (such as The Odyssey) and where those books take us. You can download pre-made maps (some examples are Night, Kite Runner, and of course, The Odyssey).
Of course, you can also create your own lit trip using Google Earth. Just add a few points, connect them with lines and/or arrows, and go on a virtual tour of Earth.
