Virtual Field Trip Options

Google Earth

Activity Ideas:

  • Social Studies: Explore a landmark, landform, or other famous location
  • ELA: "Visit" the setting of a book your students are reading
  • Math: Let students search the aerial view to find examples of angles, lines, and shapes
Google Expeditions

Take your students on a virtual field trip through their mobile devices. (Google Cardboard glasses are cool, but not a must for this!)


YouTube can be a great resource for virtual field trips! You can even throw some virtual reality in by searching the topic of your choice + "360" or "VR" at the end.

Google Lit Trips

Free, downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. Each location along the journey provides media, discussion starts, links, and more that provide relevant references to that particular part of the story.




Take virtual tours of Egyptian Antiques, Remains of the Louvre's Moat, and more.
