Why create a virtual school trip?
When school trips aren’t possible, there is a simple way to bring different places, people and experiences, such as the past, to your classroom. Engage your pupils with images and videos, quizzes, facts, virtual tours through Google earth and much more. You can also share the virtual trip with parents and the wider community via your website, email or social media.
How to create a virtual school trip
By using Google Sites, it becomes easy to combine different sources and media that can be presented to your class. Rather than sending different links and documents to them, just share one link that holds all of your resources.
Start by visiting sites.google.com
The following QR code will take you to an example Google Site which was created as part of a History topic about Hull.
Add text boxes, images, links to other websites, YouTube videos, Google Earth projects and other interactive resources such as Google Forms – for quizzes & collecting pupil’s answers.
Alternatively, you can also take a look at Google Arts & Culture where you can save money on admission fees and travel costs whilst still being able to visit museums, art galleries and the wonders of the world. With an exhaustive list of activities, you can be sure to never run out of cultural adventures. You can use Google Arts & Culture on your computer, phone or tablet and experience anything from coming face to face with a dinosaur, projecting famous works of art straight into your living room or even choreograph a dance with AI.
