Experience exploring coral reefs or the surface of Mars in one day! With Google Expeditions, teachers can take students on immersive, virtual journeys. Expeditions tours are a great way to introduce a lesson or unit or to give students background knowledge before reading a story about a faraway place! Participants learn how to lead an Expeditions tour and have the opportunity to find ready-made lessons that integrate into their grade level curriculum.
Equipment needed: Participants will need to bring a smartphone with wifi capability. iPhone or Android is acceptable. Other mobile devices such as tablets may be used as well.
Software needed: The free Expeditions app will be used during this session. iTunes - Google Play -
