Virtual Field Trip

TEDU 591 Virtual Field Trip assignment

Virtual field trips serve as a means for students to explore and interact with important people, places, and events in history. Although they are most often used in the Social Studies curriculum as students visit historical landmarks and museums, they can also be used across content areas. Virtual field trips provide a meaningful learning environment through technology and interactive exploration, especially when students are unable to visit these important destinations in person. In my Social Studies Curriculum course, I was able to try a virtual field trip to the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This virtual field trip would be especially useful for fourth grade students as it provides an interactive tour of the exhibits in the museum; however, there are additional resources available for other grade levels, including guiding questions and explanation of key vocabulary.
