Each year I tell my own students that they are not allowed to sign up for my class :) because we will take some of the trips together. Along with doing them in the lab, we also will sometimes just use our Smart board to travel. Over the years I have developed some tried and true trips, and each year I look for possible new ones. While there are some sites out there that have field trips already prepared, I also like to create my own. If you'd like take your class on a virtual trip, here are a couple I recommend:
- The Underground Railroad
If your district subscribes to Discovery Education the Harriet Tubman video is a great addition to this trip.
- The First Thanksgiving
Next time I'll share with you a field trip I created that is very popular with my students. We travel back in time to Ancient Egypt. What could be better than mummies?!
