It’s a big world out there — and there’s plenty to explore, even if you’re stuck at home. In a previous post, we shared some great virtual field trips in TCEA’s home state of Texas. Now we’re taking a look beyond the borders of the Lone Star State.
Virtual field trips can help students explore the world from home, and even engage in different types of learning with audio, visual, and video media. Here’s our list of some global recommendations for world-class virtual field trips.
