  Assignment:

   1.      If you are not familiar with Google Earth, review the tutorials to learn how to
           navigate the earth in this program.
   2.      Create an original Google Earth virtual field trip related to your topic that
           includes at least 5 different locations around the world.
   3.      Create a placemarker for each location.
   4.      Requirements for your locations:
           a. Add an image overlay at one of the locations as well as a descriptive
               placemarker.
           b. At another location add a picture in the placemarker and a description.
           c. At the third location embed a YouTube video related to your topic. (See
               http://earth.google.com/outreach/tutorial_youtube.html).
           d. You need to imbed another video into another placemarker.
   5.      Save your folder as a .kmz file.
                 Make sure that all of your placemarkers are under one folder under
                 Temporary Places. Before you save, make sure you have clicked on the
                 folder you want to save and there is a check mark in front of the folder
                 and all of the places under it. Then, click on File and select Save. Click on
                 " Save My Places". Give it a name such as “LME 535.Last Name.Topic” and
                 save it in a place you can easily locate it to submit it for your assignment.
