Virtual Field Trips
Integrate your standards while you are visiting! Have kids make a list of the questions they have as they visit various locales. Then have them do a close read and have a collaborative conversation around what they find. Groups could work together and share out what they learn with the class! Have kids write opinion pieces on why one should visit one place over another, or a narrative of their visit, or perhaps some postcards home...arrange around the room for open house and voila!
For those of us who are not opposed to hamming it up click here for a kids passport template.
Google Expeditions uses the Google Cardboard technology to create a virtual field trip experience where each of your students are given a cardboard and a "guide" from Google takes the kids on their trip! Sign up on their website and the "guide" will come with the supplies necessary. Sign up quick though, as spots fill up!
