WideOpenSchool, a platform powered by Common Sense, offers this interesting resource featuring “recommendations for field trip tours, activities, and videos”. I have been sifting through their field trip resources and found them really helpful. You can easily integrate them in your instruction and help students explore the world virtually from the comforts of your own classroom.
These resources are fetched from various platforms and are sorted by grade. There are materials for preschool, k-12, grades 3-5, grades 6-8, and grades 9-12. Examples of educational resources featured in WideOpenSchool include Niagara Falls a resource for K-5 students to help them explore and learn about this natural monument bordering US and Canada. In the Visit an Animal Shelter, K-8 students get to virtually explore the animal shelter in Sacramento, California and learn about how “pets are taken care of before they get adopted and find a new home”. Similarly, in Peek into the White House, using sign language students (grades 2-12) are taken on a virtual tour inside the West Wing of the White House and learn about how “president’s 45-second commute looks like”. I invite you to check the rest of the resources and share with your students.
