As part of the #BeCuriousGoesVirtual festival, we present to you this SENSE challenge.
Can you identify Where On Earth these satellite images were taken? They are all from Google Earth, put together by Peter Fratwell and Ruth Amey.
We’ve made it extra difficult by not putting a scale on these images…
What do you think this could be? Can you identify vegetation and cities in this image?
Can you guess what the thing in the middle might be?!
What do you think the features are? Are they natural or man-made?
Can you identify the land and the sea? Why is the land a different colour to the above image?
What do you think the round, blue patches are? Are they natural or man-made? Do you think lots of people live here?
This is a great example of Google Earth’s 3D buildings! Can you guess which city it is? It’s one of the most-famous in the world…
What do you think these are? Does the shape remind you of anything?
There are a lot of lovely colours here! Can you identify where is the sea and where is the land? Can you spot some natural and man-made features?
This scene is about 300km across. What might these structures be? From looking at the colour of the earth here, what do you think the temperature is like?
Did you enjoy seeing images of the Earth? Check out some more beautiful images on this tour in Google Earth. Click the left and right arrows at the bottom right to see some amazing scenes around the world. There’s also the ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ button the left, which will take you to a random place on Earth!
Can you explore for yourself? Maybe start by finding your house, or somewhere you’ve been on holiday, and then take a look around the world. Maybe use the ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ button. We’d love to see some amazing places you find! Tweet us at @EoCdt or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
