*Windows on the World Field Trip
 

 

By Virginia Petitt

International travel is not only an exciting and fascinating experience, it can be perceived as a dynamic school in which knowledge is accumulated through contact with other peoples, places, and cultures. In addition, travel is an opportunity to promote tolerance and understanding among people of different races, cultures, and nations.

This field trip provides teachers and students with the framework to study other countries and cultures from a personal perspective while incorporating a variety of subject areas such as reading, writing, math, and social studies (including geography, history and economics) into their virtual field trip.

Resources and project strategies

Use of the internet to study other countries and cultures provides a wealth of resources including maps, photos, interactive activities, and even audio and video clips. Students can work individually, in small groups, or as a class to research and design their own "virtual tour" of an exotic foreign land. You can order TourMaker from our store.
