Virtual Field Trips Your Kids (and You!) Can Take Today
As if we needed another one, one downside to the COVID-19 pandemic is that taking field trips to your local zoo, museum, or aquarium can be problematic (if not impossible). But the big upside? So many amazing virtual field trip experiences have blossomed online, allowing kids (and adults) to learn and discover places and people from around the world—all while wearing their pajamas.
Pointing and clicking may not be quite the same thing as seeing and experiencing science, arts, culture, and history in person, but when your field trip can include viewing artwork from the Louvre in the morning and then heading out on a leopard safari in the afternoon, it might be a fair tradeoff. (After all, virtual summer camps didn’t disappoint, right?)
Reserve a front-row seat on your couch for one of these awesome virtual field trips, many of which are free.
