While extreme weather, natural disasters and diseases are almost never welcome, they shape our world on a multitude of levels. They also provide ‘teachable moments’ when they occur and provide teachers with high profile opportunities to teach complex topics with real world examples.
Today we are delighted to launch another collection of our virtual field trips this time covering Weather and Science.
Titles include –
Students can follow the map or various points of interest to explore the subject at hand. Teachers can use the Field Trips as a presentation tool or as a precursor to project-based learning. Critical thinking and quiz questions are included to provoke discussion and test comprehension.
For Maps101 subscribers, Field Trip Library is available as an upgrade. Find out more by clicking the Field Trip Library tab on the left side of your Maps101 home page.

Now Departing! Guided tours of American History thanks to the latest in the Field Trip Library.
This week saw the launch of the latest collection of classroom resources which combine Maps101’s original educational content and Esri’s story map technology to provide an interactive, engaging experience for students.
This American History Collection follows the recently released Early Learner field trips and covers popular curriculum-based topics:
Each field trip includes a map-based tour with points of interest showing explanations, photographs, infographics, quiz questions and further reading.
The underlying concept behind the field trips is that teachers can save time and engage students using field trips to simplify otherwise complex topics using location and time to tell the story.
