Learn at Home: Virtual Field Trip #3

Last quarter, we studied California missions and their impact on Native American communities. Did you know you can visit a mission from the comfort of your own home?

Take a virtual tour of the La Purisima Mission at http://www.lapurisimavirtualtour.com/.

You can also visit Mission San Diego de Alcala in Minecraft!

Perhaps you could recreate a building in Minecraft.

After your virtual tours, you can learn more about what life was like for the soldiers and Native Americans living at the missions by searching for the article “Tough Times in Alta California” in Achieve3000.

Then go on Achive3000 and search for the article “Swimming With Giants” to learn about a program at the Georgia Aquarium where people are able to swim with the sharks.

The aquarium also has an at-home learning page with information about some of the animals and live streaming events.
