Tramline Virtual Field Trips

Field trips are great educational experiences for all students.  For teachers it’s another matter. It can be an administrative nightmare.  Permission forms have to be collected, you’re chasing down students for money, ordering the buses, and planning out the field trip.  What started off as a great idea, has lost a lot of its allure.  Luckily, technology has made field trips easier.

With the Internet, a virtual field trip is not only easier to manage, the variety of trips and the places that students can visit are almost limitless.

Everything you need to know about virtual field trips can be found at this site.  There’s even a virtual field trip book and software available.  More details (and a trial download of the software) are available on the site.  Included as well is a discussion, a printable list of all the field trips with descriptions and a virtual field trip permission slip.

Science makes up the majority of  virtual trips here, with language and social studies making up the rest.  There are also teacher virtual resource trips with an excellent article on how to develop your own virtual trips.  A good first stop for the science teacher is the Teacher’s Science Resources Tour.

What I find really appealing about these virtual field trips is the standard way each is written and presented.  Making them all standard makes for a better more uniform presentation.  Students and teachers are more able to follow and find the information presented.

Unfortunately, there are not many virtual field trips presented on this site.  The ones that are here are of the highest caliber.  It’s unfortunate that there aren’t many more.  Enjoy the ones that are here!
