Playing off this relationship between sense of place and place name can be a fun and easy geography teaching exercise. Using Google Maps, look up places which share your hometown's name or search for places with the same address as your's. Look around using Satellite View and Street View. What is similar and what is different? Why does the place have the same name/street address? Does it reference an important person to the region? Does it refer to a geographic feature?
I found this a good learning exercise for people and students as it "hits close to home" and is easily modifiable by teachers. Enjoy!
