Using Google Earth in the EYFS

Today in Cresswell 2 we are going to use Google Earth with the children in Cresswell 2.

A map of our school

The above image was made by taking a screen capture by pressing the Print Screen button on the keyboard (It’s on the right hand side above the arrows) and then pasting the image(Ctrl and V) into Microsoft word.


Later on in class, children will look at the map on our Smartboard and annotate locations using the Smartboard pens.

Children will then be given a A5 laminated copy of the map to use outside.
