BECAUSE LITERARY READING BRINGS WISDOM TO THE INFORMATION AGE
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." — Mark Twain

Welcome to Google Lit Trips!


What is a Google Lit Trip?

Lit Trips are downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. Along the way, placemarks with pop-up windows contain "just in time" resources including relevant media, thought-provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about "real world" references in that portion of the story. Our focus is on creating engaging and relevant literary experiences for students.

Watch the video on the left for a simulation of the experience.
