virtual field trips

We’re all spending a lot more time at home right now as we practice social distancing, but just because you’re stuck indoors doesn’t mean you can’t explore amazing attractions all across the globe. And with HISD and other Texas school districts starting the upcoming school year with online-only classes, traditional field trips are out for the time being. Thanks to these virtual field trip options, you can tour some of the world’s most incredible museums, zoos, natural attractions, and more.
