Virtual Field Trips and Tours
Tired of being stuck indoors with wintry mix outside? Go on a virtual trip with our two new resources on our Distance Learning page! Each resource provides easy links to amazing virtual field trips to great museums in the US and around the world - as well as some spectacular visits to places like The Sistine Chapel and the Great Wall of China. Thanks to the Gomez family for letting us know about these useful resources!
