#Google #Geo Tools for all users!

Though I taught English, I have a secret – or not-so-secret – obsession with maps and geography. To help with that obsession, I’ve been compiling a list of some of the best educational resources on geography and history in the classroom for the past few years.

Today, I added in a new resource: Google Maps Mania. I follow their blog daily on Google + and am amazed at how they combine data with maps. Last week, they showed all of the traffic deaths in the U.S. broken down by gender and age and type of accident. It’s great inspiration for what students can do.

So, check out how to Geosize Your World and Fennovation.org for more Google tools and resources!
