Meet Me At The Corner- Virtual Field Trips

As I have started posted Virtual Field Trips where I can, I have gotten lots of great comments and people asking for MORE! Well guess what? I have MORE, MORE, MORE!

Let me tell you why I am so excited about this FREE site. MEET ME AT THE CORNER is a ONE OF A KIND!
Not only does it have virtual field trips but it also has:

A WIDE range of field trips from bird watching, to Song writing with Grammy Award Nominees Trout Fishing in America, to bike blessing, parks, zoos AND MORE!

A NEW field trip every 3 weeks!

Recommended books to go along with the theme

Links to other sites to support the theme

A "Learning Corner" with questions to ask your child/student and activities to further enhance learning.

ENCOURAGES interaction and creativity by participating in videos of their own!

There are over 50 videos which are about 4-5 minutes long. The videos are hosted by children which makes it fun and engaging for your child to watch. The site is geared towards ages 7-12 but you might find that a younger child is interested in some of these videos. my 2 1/2 year old was completely engaged in some of the videos that were in an area of interest.

You must visit this site with your child, let them take trips to new places and let them be creative by submitting trips of their own! It's worth the visit let me tell you!
