  2. When you first open a new file it appears under the “Temporary Places” folder in the “Places” section.
  3. You can drag the file into another folder or area within your “Places” section in order to keep the tour available the next time you start up Google Earth.
  4. When you are ready to view the tour, select the checkbox beside the tour name, make sure the label on the tour folder is highlighted, then select the play button.

If you would like to stop the tour at any time, select the stop button, or use the mouse to end the tour by selecting the Google Earth imagery.

Creating the Tour:

  1. Right-click on the “My Places” folder, select “New” and then “Folder”.
  2. Give the folder a personalized name “John’s Tour” and enter a description of what you might see on this tour.
  3. Students locate regions, provinces, and natural resources that they want to share. Ask them to find something specific – if they are looking for wind power – find a windmill.
  4. When a site is found, they put a placemark on the location. With the personalized tour folder selected, add a “Placemark” by selecting the pushpin button and choose “Placemark” from the menu.
  5. Drag the “Placemark” over the location and enter the name of the region or resource in the “Name” box.
