Heritage Field Trips – in person and through virtual reality

Unit of Inquiry central idea: Heritage is out legacy from the past, what we live with today and pass on to future generations.

Last week students split into groups to visit 6 different potential world heritage sites in Hanoi.  During the field trip they took notes and collected evidence for why the site should be a world heritage site.  This week they are turning their notes into a persuasive paper.

This week we also used virtual reality boxes to go on a virtual field trip to world heritage sites around the world.  Students visited places such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Amazon and Machu Picchu. They then worked with their K2 buddies to describe the place they visited and then decide which UNESCO criteria it qualifies in.  It was a wonderful way to explore heritage.
