I always loved field trips with my own family and with my students. Field trips give kids an opportunity to explore different places and learn new things. But with COVID-19 limits this past year online adventures have been the GO-TO for many kids and families. Historical Virtual Tours brings the world TO your students. It is an opportunity for kids to explore different cities, customs, and cultures. They are not as good as “the real thing” but hopefully, they will leave a lasting impression on kids and they will choose to revisit them in the future. Two great things about online adventures are that you can “visit” then any time of the day and they are FREE! Enjoy!
