Angie McNamara - Google Expeditions

When Mrs. McNamara’s students heard they would be traveling inside a cell, they wanted to know if they would be riding on the Magic School Bus! Just like Mrs. Frizzle, Mrs. McNamara guided her students on a virtual tour, but instead of boarding a bus, they put on their Google cardboard headsets and quickly began identifying the parts of a cell. To schedule your ride on the Magic Google Expedition Tour contact one of your eLearning coaches. Seatbelts everyone!
