Your students have never been on a virtual field trip quite like this one! They will meet fun-loving teacher, Mrs. Reinhart and her cranky principal, Ms. Stevens (via video link). The students will follow Mrs. Reinhart's former student, Willow, through a set of clues to Willow's current where-abouts. Then they will learn about the location through text and pictures taken from the location! This set also includes rigorous reading and writing activities, as well as Smarter Balance-type Test Questions!
