Virtual Field Trip to a Forest

Hi!  It’s Friday, September 24, 2010 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
UPM Forest Life

At this website you can take a brief virtual walk through a forest to learn all about tree species, animals, insects, birds, a bog, etc.  This video tour is hosted by a guide who works for a sustainable forest industry company.

When you get to the site, select a language (English, French, German, Chinese, etc.) and wait for the program to load.  A new page opens and an interactive video presentation begins (turn up the volume). 

Place your cursor on the screen to find twirling asterisk shapes that denote places where you’ll find informative exhibits. Be sure to click on them and you’ll be treated to incredible videography of a creature or setting along with interesting information about it.

Follow the “next arrows” to see all three stages of this short but fascinating tour.
