2 More Virtual Field Trips

Here is a LINK to register for the last two virtual field trips to North America sponsored by Discovery Education. The first one to the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC was great. The length was perfect - 45 minutes. It was also just the right mix of viewer questions, previews of the series, and animal clips from the zoo. We got to see the eagles, sea lions, and wolves at the zoo and their trainers shared a lot of interesting information about them.  It was very worthwhile, so I'm glad we participated. This week, Friday May 17, will be a behind the scenes look at more animals and they will be talking with the producers of the Discovery Channel series to gain insight into the filming and making of the series. You should definitely register - if you register you will have access to the archives and you can watch it later if the live time isn't convenient for you. The final trip will be on May 30th and it is a trip to Glacier National Park. I can't wait! Make sure to register! Have you done other virtual trips with your class?  Are you planning to participate in this one? Leave a comment!
