Google Lit Trips

One of the blogs I subscribe to is the SLAV Bright Ideas blog, and it is through this blog,  that I discovered the Google LitTrips site – such fun!  It’s the old literary journey activity that we did at school, i.e. making a map of journeys taken by characters in a novel, updated for the 21st century, using Google Earth.
Try it out with The Kite Runner.  You’ll find it on the downloads page, and seeing the landscape that the characters travelled through will change the way you remember this book forever.
