Travel Vicariously

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


Uffizi Gallery

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

Animal Cameras

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.

While it would be so fun to be “there” in person, we’re thankful that technology provides alternative ways to experience adventure from the comfort of our homes during this difficult time. We’d love to hear which “travel experience”  is your favorite and any suggestions you have. Leave us a comment below. 

Happy exploring!
