Field trips without leaving home

The Stanislaus County Office of Education has created four virtual field trips for teachers and their classrooms. They are of Resendiz Fruit Barn, Faith Ranch, the Turlock Wastewater Treatment Plant and Modesto Junk Co.

“Each virtual field trip includes a video visit to the site and a lesson choice board featuring standards-aligned lessons,” SCOE spokeswoman Judy Boring said in an email. “Each lesson integrates the field trip site alongside one of the following subjects: history, social science, English language arts, science/STEM, math, and visual art.”
