Traveling the World
... without leaving your classroom
Two weeks ago a music teacher who has been studying opera with her fifth graders was able to put her students on stage during the opera. They used a YouTube 360 video of "Lohengrin" that was recorded in São Paulo in 2015. Then they were able to explore through the Royal Opera House in London using Google Streetview.
Last week I worked with a second grade teacher to plan a Flat Stanley activity. Students mailed their own Flat Stanley to friends and family all over the world. They were able to virtually visit the places they went to using Google Streetview and even Expeditions to the regions. After they virtually visited they did some research to learn more and shared their learning on a shared Google MyMaps.
