Take a virtual tour of the San Diego Zoo, Easter Island, or even Mars with your class. Sometimes the best place for students to learn is outside the classroom and in the real world. Unfortunately, with COVID no one has been able to go on field trips. Plus, virtual field trips take us far and wide- to places we may not ever have the chance to visit in person.
