Travel Around the World: Virtual Tours and Field Trips

Traveling can break up the monotony of a boring day and open your mind to interesting ideas. Field trips and vacations can be expensive, though, and travel is sometimes difficult. That's why virtual field trips are a great choice! Virtual tours and field trips don't require any money or planning, and you can take one whenever you want. You and your friends can go on the same virtual tour together, or your whole class can take a virtual field trip to the location of your choosing. With only an Internet connection, you can break the boundaries of your home or school and visit all sorts of locations.
