Tramline Virtual Field Trips

Tramline Website features FREE Virtual Field Trips created for students in grades K-12 by educators using a software program that provides a host of navigation and orientation aids absent in other field trip formats. It helps to organize the chaos of the Web and saves the student and teacher hours of Internet research time.

When you get to the website you will see an introduction. Scroll down a little to see a menu of field trips that are divided into three sections:

  • Science Field Trips — Includes virtual field trips to learn about Antartica, Dinosaurs, Oceans, Insects, Sharks, Hurricanes, Volanoes, and more.
  • Other Field Trips — Includes virtual field trips to learn about the American Presidency, The Dark Ages, Filmmaking, Flight, Leonardo da Vinci, The Oregon Trail, Shakespeare, Women’s History, Pi and more!
  • Teachers Resource Field Trips — Some information for teachers about using the Field Trips at this site with resources for other complementary teaching tools as well.

Under any of the above sections, click on the title of the field trip that interests you and a new page opens with specific instructions on how to navigate the site to get the most out of the tour. Although it may seem a little awkward at first, once you try it with one virtual field trip — the format is the same for every
field trip archived at the site — making navigation much easier in the long run.

This is a fantastic educational tool, so bookmark it and return to take the many field trips offered — and explore new trips as they are added to the site.
