Use Case: A specific situation in which a product or service could potentially be used.
Google Tour Creator allows individuals to create interactive tours. I believe Tour Creator will have a huge impact on learning experiences for students. To gain insights on how a teacher might use Google Tour Creator I researched the standards that a current 5th grader in Arkansas would be taught. I evaluated all the 5th grade Science, Social Students, Math, Enlish Language Arts, and Computer Science Standards from the perspective of a teacher. I selected one standard from each content area and found a use case to use Google Tour Creator to create a possible meaningful learning for students. I hope this encourages you to use Google Tour Creator with your students this year.
Science: 5-ESS2-2 - Describe and graph the amounts of saltwater and freshwater in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

Social Studies: H.12.5.4 Evaluate short-and long-term effects of European exploration and settlement in the Americas and Arkansas from multiple perspectives (e.g. Roanoke, Jamestown, disease, conflict)
Math: AR.Math.Content.5.MD.C.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume: • Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base (B) • Represent threefold whole-number products as volumes (e.g., to represent the associative property of multiplication) • Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = B × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems • Recognize volume as additive • Find volumes of solid figures composed of two non-overlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems
English Language Arts: RL.5.6 Describe how a narrator's or speaker's point of view and/or perspective influence how events are described.
