A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail thanking me for my information about national parks virtual tours as it helped out Amanda and Grace for their “Exploring the World from Home” workshop at the Rutland County Library in Vermont.
In their research, Amanda found a couple of great online resources that I wanted to share:
Take a virtual trip and see some amazing architecture throughout the world through by clicking here. I really like how you can scroll to a particular place and click to check it out.
Take a virtual reality trip by clicking here. On this page, you can time travel through virtual reality. For example, you can step onto the Titanic as it looked like when it left Great Britain.
Thank you to Amanda and Grace for sharing these really interesting online resources! Good luck with your workshop!
I’m going to take a virtual tour now to check out Anne Frank’s house! Happy online traveling!
Recently, I received an e-mail thanking me for my information about national parks virtual tours as it helped out Corrine and her Girl Scout troop work on their Arts and Culture Fun Patch.
In their research, Corrine found a couple of great online resources that I wanted to share:
Take a virtual trip through each state and visit a historical landmark, museum, or zoo by clicking here. I really like how you can scroll to a particular state and click to check it out. You’ll even see some national parks on there.
Take a virtual trip around the world and visit aquariums, zoos, national parks, famous landmarks, animals, and more by clicking here. You’ll see some national parks on this page too, but also places like Machu Picchu or Buckingham Palace.
Thank you to Corrine and her troop for sharing these really interesting online resources! Great job on earning your patch!
I’m going to take a virtual tour now to check out some polar bears in the Artic! Happy online traveling!
Happy National Park Week! National Park Week is celebrated every April for a week. National Park Week is a time to explore about these amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, volunteer, and find your park!
Each day this week has a theme and today is National Junior Ranger Day! The junior ranger program allows people of all ages to “explore, learn, and protect” your national parks by doing some activities to earn their badge. Each park offers different activities or programs.
(And yes, they really mean all ages as I did the program at a national park as an adult and even before having kids as I thought it was so cool!)
I highly recommend checking this program out the next time you visit a cool place within our national park system!
Since you can’t make to a national park right now, you can become a webranger online! Click here for the web site!
In addition, you can become a junior ranger by learning about the importance of sounds outside. Click here for the packet. Once you complete it, you can get a digital high five. See the last page for the direction.
