What educators are saying

My students loved this and worked well with my students during our natural wonders unit during reading. It made distance learning easier because we could not take a real field trip.
This was great to wrap up our geography unit in social studies! I've also used it for just a fun activity after we wrapped up a big unit.

Take your elementary students on a virtual field trip to the 7 Natural Wonders of the World! Using a combination of Google Earth™ 360-degree views, informational text, video, and visuals, your students will learn about each of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World from various perspectives.

Students will learn about and virtually explore the following:

  • Victoria Falls

This low prep activity includes:

:: Video links

:: Response questions ("show what you know")

How it Works:

This 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 and videos. Work can be completed digitally with no printing necessary.


This virtual field trip is structured. This means that the informational text and links are meaningful and are meant to lead students to think deeply about each destination. There are short answer "show what you know" response questions integrated throughout. This is also a great way to keep students accountable as they learn and explore.

Standards Alignment:

:: Common Core Standards for Reading Informational Text

:: Washington Geography Standards

:: Can be used as a cross-curricular activity as it fits many different standards


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 smartphone, simply download the Google Earth App before starting the virtual field trip. Your students will also need access to YouTube to view the video clips.
