Fonde's virtual trip to Yellowstone
Fonde's fourth grade students recently traveled to Yellowstone National Park-via a virtual field trip! The students have been studying a weekly reading story titled, "Letters Home from Yosemite" the students decided to research the park and Yellowstone as well.
The exciting part of the lesson included a video conference where Park Ranger, Beth Taylor hosted a tour and answered questions. The students were able to formulate intelligent questions to ask based on their own research.They learned about the geographic features and wildlife of both parks.

My students learned so much from the virtual trip to Yellowstone Park. They were amazed to discover that they could use the social media, twitter, youtube, and facebook to continue their study on Yellowstone.
