4 Live Virtual Field Trip Options You Don’t Want to Miss!

Erica Peron Teacher Resources for Success

We know that with all the adaptations teachers are making this year, there is not much time to search for interesting activities or engaging field trips. For many teachers, in-person field trips are not even an option right now. That is why this month’s resources are designed to provide you with easy to access, free, exciting, live field trips and virtual tours that you can experience with your students. We hope these resources can help engage both the in-person and remote learners in your classroom!

  1. Skype in the Classroom
    • By far the best option for virtual field trips, guest speakers, tours, and virtual connections. This completely free resource offers personal tours and conversations with experts in any field! Check out their library of virtual field trips, join a special live event, or schedule a scientist or a best-selling author to be your next guest speaker.
  2. Live Distance Learning from the National Parks
    • The National Parks have gone virtual! Chat with a Ranger or join one of their many educational live events. Two parks with excellent live distance learning options are Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park.
  3. National Pro-Football Hall of Fame’s Free Youth & Education Video Conferencing Programs
    • The NFL Pro-football Hall of Fame’s Youth & Education Center offers free video conferencing programs on a whole host of topics.
  4. Free Virtual Tours & Live Programs from the Center for Interactive Learning & Collaboration
    • Tours and programs cover topics such as Art, Nature, History, STEM, and so much more!
Don’t have time to schedule a live session? Try a Virtual Tour!
