Virtual Reality Field Trip!

Yesterday, we went on a field trip across America! 

April Fools! 

We used Virtual Reality, and it was so much fun! Mrs. Minicozzi brought a wagon full of virtual reality viewers and an ipad full of places to go!

After we went over the rules, we paired up, shared the goggles, and Mrs. Yollis began the Tour of American Landmarks!

Goggles on! Let's start the field trip! 

Tourists had to stay in their seats during every stop. 

After a view, the goggles were handed to a partner. Students then wrote down or drew pictures of what they saw.

When the tour return home, students selected one American landmark to research on Britannica. After gathering three new facts, a blog post was written. Photos came from Google Earth or Mrs. Yollis.

  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,

    Isn't it amazing that you can travel the world from the comfort of your classroom?

    I bet you all enjoyed looking at US landmarks. I was just reading Sarah Gold's post before and I was reflecting on my own visits to the Statue of Liberty.

    I found some photos from Mrs Yollis' 365 blog from 7 years ago!

    Here is a picture of when I visited the Statue of Liberty...

    Here is a picture of when your wonderful teacher visited the Statue of Liberty a few months later...

    One of the great things about blogging is you can look back at old memories.

    I'm curious if there are any Australian landmarks you'd like to visit using VR?

    Best wishes from Australia,
    Mrs Kathleen Morris
