Tip #27: Take Your Teacher on a Virtual Field Trip

You may not be able to afford to send your teacher on an exotic vacation, but you can treat them to a virtual field trip. Is your teacher interested in Japan or Ancient Greece? Take them there to explore the culture, museums, or even participate in a real-time, design-your-own adventure experience. Check out this list of virtual field trips and choose one that fits their interests.
