Virtual Field Trips

Virtual field trips challenge and expose students to new types of technology. It is a great way to spark their interest and motivate their learning in a specific content area. Virtual field trips can offer students more opportunities because you can take them to places they wouldn’t normally be able to go to otherwise – like inside a volcano or ocean floor! In addition, virtual field trips may even boost students’ reading comprehension skills and will expose them to different cultures and environments.

While virtual field trips offer a great learning opportunity, they can be hard to organize and time consuming. Take advantage of our free virtual field trips and engage your students even more!

DISCLAIMER: Please use at your own discretion. As always, it is important to check out any website before using it in class with your students. While there is no registration or cost to reference our ever-growing list of virtual field trips, we cannot guarantee that one or more of the field trips listed does not require registration or fees. We try hard to bring you both the best virtual field trips available on the web, as well as all that are free. If you know of a great virtual field trip you’d like to add to the list, contact us!
