This grant purchased Virtual Reality (VR) Kits, which allowed students to virtually explore locations while the teacher guides the journey on the teacher device. Sixth graders visited Roman cities, Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China. Seventh graders visited the Great Barrier Reef, wetlands, and Antarctica. Eighth Graders visited Industrial Revolution-era factories, Civil War battlegrounds and much more! Other applications can include other classes to explore human body systems, Mars, fossils biodiversity and art! These interactive journeys make learning relevant and engaging while allowing students to experience, visualize and develop an understanding of places and concepts.
