Do you teach elementary or middle school? Are you looking for experiences for your students that will provide them the opportunity to travel to and learn the planets, the White House, national parks and much more?

This post provides links to six websites that provide virtual field trips. The majority of the trips are geared to students from grades 3 - 8, but check them out. You may find that they are great for your class.

Consider visiting Colonial Williamsburg, check out Global Trek from Scholastic where you can design a "fake" trip by visiting many places in the world and much more.
