Virtual Field Trip
Transcript of Virtual Field Trip
Step 2: Let's GO to Alaska...get your coat! ;)
Let's use Google Earth to find Juneau, Alaska. Juneau is the capital of Alaska.
Watch this footage and imagine that you are there!
Play this garden game:
Now play this grocery store game:
I hope that you enjoyed this field trip and feel like you learned something!
Bye bye for now! :)
If you need help at any time during this trip, raise your hand politely and ask for it!
Today we are going to compare the weather in 3 different states: our own state, Alaska, and Hawaii
To start out, look up the weather conditions (temperature, wind speed, and humidity) in your city and record it on your worksheet: http://www.weather.com/
Wait for your teacher's instructions to go outside with the whole class and observe the weather. Bring your worksheet to draw a picture and make some observations on the back.
Look up the weather conditions (temperature, wind speed, and humidity) in Juneau, Alaska and Kauai, Hawaii using the link above.
Find the difference between the temperature in Kauai and your area. Find the difference between the temperature in your area and Juneau. Write these equations in your science notebook.
Step 5: Natural Resources
-Now let's talk about natural resources.
A natural resource is something that is found in nature and can be used by people. Earth's natural resources include light, air, water, plants, animals, soil, stone, minerals, and fossil fuels. People need some natural resources to stay alive. Some resources are renewable, which means they will grow again. Some are non-renewable, which means once you take it and use it, it can't grow back. That's why we reuse and recycle!
How are these two games related?? Food starts out in the form of a plant or an animal, and then eventually they end up in groceries stores and we can buy those food products!
Take out your science notebook!
View at least 2 websites for each state and write down 2 resources or products from each state.
To see even more of Kauai, view these live webcams (if there is an ad, be sure to press "skip ad"):
Step 3: Let's go to Hawaii now...you probably won't need your jacket anymore!
Let's locate Kauai, Hawaii on Google Earth. The capital of Hawaii is Honolulu, but Kauai is a highly visited and beautiful area!
The kids in this video are going to take us along to Hawaii...are you ready?
What do they eat in Alaska?
Of course, modern Alaskans eat everything that you and I eat, but some traditional Alaskan foods are wildberries (blueberries!), salmon and seafood, big game like moose, caribou, elk, and bear (and yes, they eat those animals!), and their favorite bread is called sourdough bread. Let's have a snack! :)
Important Alaskan History
Eskimos have lived in Alaska for a long time, and they still live in parts of the state. Everything about their lives is influenced by the cold tundra climate they live in.
Another part of Alaskan history is the true story of Balto, a dog who saved an Alaskan town from dying of disease. If you'd like to learn more about this, look for a book in the library! :)
Let's view some live webcams of Kauai, Hawaii!
Step 4: Time to do some research!
- You need a piece of paper and a pencil. Work as a team...there are only so many iPads, computers, and books.
- Answer these questions:
1. What are some of the good things about living in Alaska? What are some of the bad things, or disadvantages?
2. When has there been a bad storm in Alaska? Tell about it.
3. What are some of the good things about living in Hawaii? What are some of the bad things?
4. When has there been a bad storm in Hawaii? Tell about it.
5. Two extra fun facts about each state.
Step 2: Let's tap into your 4th grade knowledge!
You have filled out your weather worksheet, and you have observed the weather outside. Now how would you describe North Carolina's weather? Raise your hands!
What are some interesting and fun places to visit in North Carolina? Raise your hands!
What are some activities that we can enjoy in North Carolina that maybe we couldn't enjoy in every single state?
Let's make a state brochure! :)
