This presentation shows images for 25 locations on google maps where you can walk around and explore and includes a location title for each so that you can visit yourself. If you find you need some tips for traveling more easily on these virtual field trips, view my travel tips video. Virtual field trips can help your students practice observing closely and noting details, can motivate them to find more information through their own research, can give them authentic material to compare and contrast, can build their background knowledge, and can give them shared experiences to discuss and to write about. This can lead to more careful analysis of graphics in nonfiction and on tests, and it can also lead to more detailed and descriptive speaking and writing.
