    How it Works:

    Each virtual field trip can be conducted teacher-led or shared with students through Google Classroom as an independent assignment. Everything is set up for you. This resource is LOW PREP and would even make great sub plans. Student directions are found within the lesson, and direct links are included to specific Google Earth locations. All work is completed digitally. No printing necessary.


    These virtual field trips are structured. This means that the informational text, videos, and links are meaningful and are meant to lead students to think critically as they respond to the questions throughout the virtual field trip. This is also a great way to keep students accountable as they learn and explore. All response questions are EDITABLE, so you can tailor to your class needs.

    Standards Alignment:

    :: Common Core Standards for Reading Informational Text

    :: Washington State Social Studies Standards for 6th grade World Civilizations.

    Grading Rubric:

    A grading rubric is included which assesses: accuracy, thoroughness, validity, and writing conventions. Answers will vary throughout, as students are recording their observations and findings.


    Please note that students will need to access Google Earth to complete this assignment. Google Earth can be accessed on a desktop using Chrome as the browser. If using a tablet or smart phone, simply download the Google Earth App before staring the virtual field trip.
