On Friday morning I shared a few good resources for learning about sharks. Another neat way for students to learn about sharks is through the Google Earth voyage titled Searching for Sharks in Street View. This is a seven part voyage created with imagery captured by The Ocean Agency. The voyage takes viewers to seven underwater locations around the world to view sharks in their natural habitats.
Each section of Searching for Sharks in Street View contains information cards that tell readers about the types of sharks they’re seeing, where they live, and the threats to that type of shark. Take a look at sharks in Street View right here.
Applications for Education
Searching for Sharks in Street View is a nice way to start learning about sharks through Google Earth. To dive deeper into learning about shark habitat and movement, use one of Google Earth files about shark tracking that you can find through a quick Google search for “shark tracking” that is refined by file type to .KML.
