    Never heard of a ‘virtual field trip’ before. Neat concept for allowing children to explore the world at the click of a button!

      Amazing where technology can take kids right inside their classrooms!

    This is pretty amazing. I would love to try some of these at home, but will also recommend them to my daughter’s teacher.

    Such a good idea! This is great if you want to take your students to somewhere far away or someplace you wouldn’t be able to travel to.

    This is such a good idea! Not sure if it truly replaces being able to visit somewhere, but it’s a great alternative when resources are limited. Thanks for sharing! Also, I love that quote: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

      I agree, nothing can replace an actual visit.. but like you said, if resources or time is prohibitive it’s a great alternative. I also use these as a way to get ready for a trip somewhere with my girls. Before we moved to D.C. we did a few virtual trips to get them excited about going in person.
