Here is a Google Map we created showing where each comment was written. We added some highlights about the weather in their area at the time of the post.

Our students were amazed at the response and the facts that you shared! They were very excited to reply to you. We searched each state or country noted in the comments on Google Earth. Our classes were delighted to see the Earth spin and “fly to” each location. They loved seeing photographs taken in each area. We took note of landforms and compared and contrasted them to our own. Our classes are buzzing with adventure as they share places they want to visit and learn more about because of your comments.

A bajillion (yes, bajillion=considerably more than a million) thanks to all of you!

We are excited to see what we will learn from you next!
