Teaching Tips for Taking Field Trips:
1. Virtual Postcards: Instruct students to Copy and Paste Pictures and the URL's that go with them to a MS Word document. Students add text in "postcard" language (i.e. 'wish you were here', etc...) and send to you by printing, email, etc..
2.  Travel Log:  Have students record their impressions of their virtual trip in a Word document journal.
3.  Online Hide and Seek: Explain to students that important items from trip sites are "hiding" out on the Internet. Either give students the websites to "seek" the objects or (for older kids) instruct them to use the links above to "find" the object on their own.
4. Online Scrapbook: Invite students to create an online scrapbook collage of the images they find most interesting, or that describe a theme from a unit you are working on,  in either a Word file or PowerPoint presentation for class viewing.
