Sout 2nd Graders Take a Virtual Tour


Mrs. Walsh’s second grade class at South took a virtual field trip recently to several patriotic landmarks. Students worked with Digital Learning Specialist Ms. Kennedy to use an app (Nearpod) on their iPads to take 360° tours of the Statue of Liberty, The Golden Gate Bridge, The Washington Monument, Old Faithful, The Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore.
In these virtual field trips, students could look around the site, zoom in on details and fully explore the places they could not visit in person during the school day. Students discussed why each landmark was a representation of the US and were really engaged with exploring and sharing their discoveries with each other and with their teachers. Dr. McBride and Dr. Berman were able to join in the on virtual field trip as well.
