It’s Friday, July 17, 2015, and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!


Recommended Website:


Victoria Butterfly Gardens


Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)


At this website you can learn all about butterflies and take a virtual tour of a beautiful habitat created for them at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens. Not only will you be introduced to over 25 varieties of butterflies, but you can learn about the plants that nourish them. You can also meet some of the birds that inhabit the garden.
When you get to the site and click on the link to play the 3D virtual tour, visitors will need to download the Unity Web Player if it is not already on their computers. (Please note that the player is not supported by Chrome, so visitors will need to use a different internet browser to view the tour.) Once the player is installed, the 3D simulation will load. Read through the instructions for the best visit experience. Some areas of the tour have yellow labels that when clicked on provide information about the area. Some of the animals in the garden are also clickable to learn more about them. When clicking on these locations there are often images that can be enlarged for a closer look. Visitors will also have an opportunity to test their knowledge of the gardens to receive a 20% discount voucher for admission to the Victoria Butterfly Gardens if they are ever in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia.

When you are through visiting the garden, use the main menu to learn more about the butterflies, plants, and birds. If you click on “Butterflies” then “Butterfly Catalogue”, a new page opens with pictures of all of the species that live in the Victoria Butterfly Garden. Click on any individual picture, and a new page opens with detailed information about that particular butterfly.

You can see the birds and fish, jungle creatures, and plants in the gardens in the same manner by selecting the appropriate link in the menu.

Don’t forget to explore the life cycle of butterflies by clicking on “Butterflies” on the main menu, then “Life Cycle” under the Learning Centre on the right hand side bar.

This is a fascinating virtual trip the whole family will enjoy.
