I can hardly wait to travel with our 6th grade classes to the Smithsonian Zoo tomorrow to learn all about the animals of North America. Discovery Education is sponsoring this virtual field trip in advance of their North America series set to begin airing May 19th on the Discovery Channel. If you are interested, you should register HERE. A video archive will also be available if you can't make the live event. I've participated in several virtual field trips with different grade levels this year, and they are a lot of fun. There are two more follow-up trips to this one: next week will be a Q&A session with the producers of the series and the final trip will be to a national park. It really is the next best thing to being there! Have you participated in any virtual field trips this year? If so leave a comment and let me know!
