As homeschoolers, we try to get out and see everything we can. But get out of or driving across the country isn’t always an option to see certain sites. That’s where virtual field trips come in! You can see sites, learn history and fun facts right from home! These are a great addition to any homeschool curriculum! Here are 10 Great Virtual Field Trips for Homeschoolers
