Google Tour Builder

Google Tour Builder

Google Tour Builder allows users to tell stories using Google maps, images, videos, and text. It is a fantastic tool for students to use to show what they know about different topics. Maybe students are summarizing the chapters of a book and each placemark represents a different chapter. Or perhaps students create a tour to share summaries of current events happening around the world.

Below you can see a list of resources we looked at and directions for creating placemarks in Google Maps Engine Lite, directions for using Classic Google Maps, directions for creating tours in Google Tour Builder and in Google Earth.
