Google Earth Alphabet tour for young learners.
« on: September 29, 2009, 09:24:05 am »
Hi all,

I thought this would be a good place to champion a tour I made for young learners, it's an alphabet tour of galaxies which resemble letters, with animals, sounds, music bright colours and more!
It runs in Google Earth, and I've attached it to this post.

Cheers,

Ben.

It won't download for me, not on a Mac or a PC :( Any advice? What, specifically, does it need?

Took a couple of attempts to download properly but it worked in the end. 8) What happens when you try Alice?

Hi Peeps,

So I've just downloaded and opened the file with google earth [latest version], and everything is working well. I don't encounter any problems.

What trouble were you having?

Cheers,

Ben.

My daughter (who is almost four) really likes Ben's tour. I downloaded it and it works fine on my Mac. Sorry that some of you are having trouble.
