Martin Luther King Jr. - Virtual Field Trip plus FREEBIE

Field trips can be a great learning experience for students.  There are hundreds of places that would enrich our curriculum.  If only we had a Magic School Bus at our disposal! With a little research, you can find sites that offer virtual field trips.  Just in time for your January plans, I found the ones below:

Click HERE to visit Martin Luther King Jr. childhood home.

Click HERE to visit the Civil Rights Movement site.

Click HERE to visit the MLK National Memorial.

You can set up virtual tours as a computer center/station.  I made free printables that students can complete after they travel virtually.  There is one with Martin and one without in case you like to travel to other places throughout the year.
