Panoramas of the World


Students will enjoy geography when they can actually step into a "panorama" of the place they are visiting. Visitors actually feel as if they are in the most exciting, beautiful, historic, and remote parts of the earth through these panoramas. The site suggests its newest and most sought after panoramas like the Moon, Mars, Mt. Everest, and the Eiffel Tower, but students can also search for specific countries or places in the news. This is a great way to get students involved in world geography.
