    Don't get left behind! Cross off all of these North American landmarks from your bucket list and travel to them virtually.

    Teachers, parents, and students all agree that these are the best ways to learn about and experience these exotic sites, if you can't go there in person.

    Each product includes a document of talking points and interesting facts about each tourist attraction.

    The tours are also accompanied by PDF files that describe what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at.

    For example, an excerpt from the Statue of Liberty tour says –

    "1:05 – 1:18 – The tour takes you down to the entrance of New York Harbor.

    a. The bridge in the middle of the screen is the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and it connects Brooklyn and Staten Island over a straight of water called the Narrows.

    b. The Manhattan skyline is on the eastern side of the harbor and Jersey City’s skyline is on the western side.

    c. The Statue of Liberty is the teeny tiny green dot right in front of downtown Jersey City.”

    To watch, all you have to do is click on the file, Google Earth will open the tour will start. * Your computer must have Google Earth to watch these tours.
