Instructional Ideas
  • Make a virtual field trip part of Thanksgiving instruction 
  • Over the course of several days, assign one video for homework then the slideshow—check for comprehension with a classroom blog post asking content and reflection questions
  • Coordinate time in the computer lab or in your classroom for pupils to watch the videos; encourage them to wear headphones to heighten focus and keep the volume in the room down 
Classroom Considerations
  • Appropriate grade levels are listed underneath each video 
  • Most videos are between 16-20 minutes long, one video is 30 minutes long 
  • Includes additional videos about Thanksgiving 
  • The slide show contains a plethora of pictures 
  • Connects a virtual field trip to related units on the site
  • Video quality is not the best
