We had a great time with Google Expeditions! They visited our school on 11/24 and all of our students were able to take a virtual field trip in their social studies class. The day and experience went off without a hitch and I think the teacher had more fun than the students. Check out the www.rcscsd.org homepage for details (coming soon). Some of the trips the students took were to Rome and Egypt, Washington DC, NYC and Mount Rushmore. They were even able to take some side trips to swim with sharks, or see penguins.
We would love to get a set of google cardboards to use at school for when google expeditions goes live, so we have a doners choose project at Doners Choose Google Cardboard to raise money to get these wonderful tools in our school.
