With a school year that experienced some turbulence, you can still make a smooth landing and keep your students engaged and learning until the last school bell with ready-to-go virtual field trips.
It seems that once testing is over, students are counting down the days to summer break. Who am I kidding, teachers count down the days too. And with another year rife with uncertainty under your belt, you deserve more than ever to experience a smooth landing.
I've compiled 4 virtual field trips for the end of the year that are fun and engaging and provide a meaningful learning experience. We know that students love to "play" because that's what the brain wants to do. Each of these self-paced virtual field trips provides an opportunity for students to explore using Google Earth™, and lead their own learning.
Each trip is set up in Google Slides with clickable links, informational text, short video clips, and Google Earth™ 360-degree views. These trips are low-prep and quick and easy to assign in Google Classroom or another LMS. You could also conduct each trip whole-group if devices are limited or Google Earth™ and YouTube are blocked by your school firewall. Teachers share with me that their students find these trips just as exciting whether the teacher is "navigating the tour" or if students are completing the trip on their own devices.
