Google Earth is an amazing tool for looking at our world in different ways.

Primary Classroom
In the primary classroom, I would use Google Earth as a demonstration to students(at least at first). Either in the lab or with a projector in your classroom, you could explore your community from a different perspective.

You could integrate a modified version of Show and Tell with zooming into where a child lives, then have the child describe their neighbourhood. Here is the neighbourhood that I live in.

Intermediate Classroom
There are many options available. Students can navigate around their community, and around those they are studying in Social Studies. Learning about Longitude and Latitude make more sense when interactive.
