Change can be measured on the long term (geologic) or the short term (human). “The Rise and Fall of the Great Lakes” is a 17 minute video that explores both concepts in a fun way. If you live in the Great Lakes area, the film is a great way to get the students to think of the lakes in a new way. If you live out of the area, it is a great way to introduce them to the Great Lakes and start a unit looking at the importance of the Great Lakes. This unit/lesson goes with the video "The Rise and Fall of the Great Lakes". The lesson is a series of short exploratory activities that culminate with the students researching an aspect of the Great Lakes. Google Earth is used in showing the students the Great Lakes area. Students could use Google Earth to report their research.

I really like this lesson because it uses multimedia to really enhance learning. I am never impressed with technology that is "cool," only technology that is "helpful." I am inspired by your kmz file. :)
