Google Maps - Blurring the "Earth" lines and making maps in any subject

GWE Google Maps
Activity:
If you are a "one clicker":
Relax, make a map and make four custom pins that trace the path of four schools you have attended. Add a short paragraph and three vocabulary terms on each stop. Add a photo on each stop as well. When finished, you can click on "KML" to open your map in Google Earth.

If you are a "three" or "five" clicker:
Make a map together with another person (see: invite collaborators, below)  that encompasses all the schools you have TAUGHT at, between the two of you. Make sure to make a custom pin, add a line between each site based on the year you started teaching at each respective school. Add a short paragraph and three vocabulary terms on each stop. Add a photo on each stop as well. When finished, you can click on "KML" to open your map in Google Earth.

Super bonus from Jerome Burg (The Lit Trip Godfather):

How do you make titles pop up on Google Earth for a fixed amount of time?

Go into GE preferences and click the TOURING tab. There you can set tours to 
WAIT AT A FEATURE (placemark) for a set amount of time and to SHOW 
BALLOON WHEN WAITING AT FEATURES.
