National Geographic has a ton of resources for educators. I am working on getting their educator certification, so I will highlight more of them later. But one that caught my eye was the ability to have your class chat with a Nat Geo explorer. Each month, National Geographic picks a theme and highlights the work of a few explorers who touch on that theme. You can register your class to chat with one of those explorers. The experience comes complete with an educator toolkit full of articles, case studies, videos, and activities that you can use with your class to capitalize on the experience. Visit the Explorer Classroom and follow the instructions to register!
For other “in class” field trips you might like to consider, see this earlier post.
