When Skies are Grey – new field trip collection makes students, teachers happy.

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.

Field Trip Library Hurricanes

Hurricanes and Tornados field trip

Titles include –

  • Storm surges and tides
  • Extreme Weather
  • Climate Change
  • Hurricanes and Tornadoes
  • Ocean Currents

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.
