Monster Milktruck requires the Google Earth plug-in to be installed, and it only works in certain operating systems and browsers:
Microsoft Windows (2000, XP, and Vista)
- Google Chrome 1.0+
- Internet Explorer 6+
- Firefox 2.0+
- Flock 1.0+
- Safari 3.1+
- Firefox 3.0+
- In addition to being a great reinforcer, time spent with Monster Milktruck could target a variety of spatial concepts (left/right, through/around, etc), geographic categories, description of landscapes or "what's in a town?"
- This resource could also be used to build schema around past and present, with an eye to how people used to get milk and how they get it now...perhaps in conjunction with a book like Pilkey's The Paperboy.
- Monster Milktruck would be a motivating visual way to explore and describe any location relevant to the curriculum (e.g. U.S. Capitals) and compare/contrast the experience.
