New for Elementary Teachers

Google Earth Tour for Elementary Classes

Use this Google Earth tour to travel to Japan with your students. Visit Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, and Kyoto and learn about Japanese food, history, and culture. Recommended for kindergarten through fifth grade.

Download the tour. The tour works with Google Earth. If you don't already have Google Earth on your computer, you can download it for free from the Google Earth website.

Tips for use

  • Be sure that only one version of this tour is open at a time. In Google Earth, go to the Places panel and look in "My Places" and "Temporary Places" for duplicate versions of the tour.
  • To allow for automatic flying between stops on this tour, go to Google Earth > Preferences > General (on a Mac) OR Tools > Options > General (on a PC) and check "Allow access to local files and personal data"
  • Google Earth has hundreds of built-in “layers” that can enhance (or distract) your viewing of the globe. The "Layers" panel is located on the lower left side of the screen. The first time you view this tour we recommend turning off all layers except "Borders and Labels." After you are comfortable navigating the tour, you may want to explore the "Photos" layer or those found in the "Gallery."
