How Do You Create a Google Lit Trip?
A Google Lit Trip is a collection of "Place-marks" and online resources saved in Google Earth.  To create a tour or trip, begin by selecting the places you want to feature in Google Earth.  Once you've put a place-mark at each location, you can then begin embedding photos, videos, web-links, and more in the "Properties" window or Info Box of each location.

a.  Opening Question- Mentimeter Poll & Today's Meet
