Field trips are a wonderful way to see and learn about the world around us. Field trips enhance learning by motivating and engaging students in a way that makes the subject matter come alive. However, field trips can be difficult to organize, can be expensive, usually involve travel, and are often impractical. With the advent of the World Wide Web, virtual field trips have become possible. With just a computer with an Internet connection, teachers and students can travel together around the world seeing and learning many new things, plus interacting with the people and objects in the places they visit.
