Alaska Field Trip



Go on a virtual field trip to Alaska and explore the fragile ecosystem.

The Alaskan landscape is truely one of the Earth's most beautiful spectacles. This area is capable of providing many energy resources, particularly fossil fuels. But with this comes a risk that the fragile ecosystem will be damaged. In this beautifully designed KML, students can take a virtual field trip to Alaska and explore the current issues there. Along with text, photos and links, questions are asked of the students enabling them to consider the many factors involved in environmental planning. This is a prime example of using Google Earth to enhance and enrich an individual's education - through geography.
