Virtual Fieldtrips and Scavenger Hunts

Virtual Internet fieldtrips are guided tours of web sites that have been selected by educators and arranged in a “thread” that students can navigate with just a click. There are many ready-made virtual fieldtrips. In addition, several of these sites walk the teacher through the process of creating their own virtual field trip. These fieldtrips introduce students to using search engines to find information on the Internet, usually focusing on a particular theme chosen by a teacher.
