As teachers and students find themselves at home teaching and learning online in the midst of COVID-19, there are so many great virtual resources to travel vicariously through the web and explore the world.
Museums - Virtual Tours
Bonus: For the Color Our Collections program, museums around the world have created PDF coloring pages of their art to download, print and color. Coloring is not only a great stress reliever for kids and adults alike, but you can learn about art at the same time.
Practice a new language for a future trip abroad through free online language courses from universities around the world. Language-learning apps like Babbel are also giving out free student subscriptions (Spring 2020).
Virtual Field Trips and Activities
The Great Wall of China
Meerkats- San Diego Zoo
Food From Around the World
Consider trying some international recipes at home to travel abroad through food! If you want to dive more in-depth, try Masterclass for cooking lessons from around the world or Netflix for international food documentaries (Taco Chronicles, Street Food and Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat).
Tapas Dinner - Spain
World & Travel Documentaries
You can find travel documentaries on many streaming platforms. Here are a few suggestions.

We’d love to hear which “travel experience” is your favorite and any suggestions you have. Leave us a comment below.
