Leaner Description: This virtual field trip is designed for people, age 10 and up, who want to visit the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, D. C.
For your information: This virtual field trip does not contain embedded You Tube videos, so it can be used to its fullest in any educational setting. Throughout the field trip you are pointed to museum videos and virtual museum tours.
Welcome to Washington, D. C.: Washington, D. C. is the Capital of the United States. I have chosen five different museums for this field trip. I, Miss Herman, will be your guide as you visit each location. I hope you enjoy yourself!
Expectations During your Trip: Each place you visit will have two to three questions for you to answer. These questions will be located in the box to the right. You can print the question worksheet (Word Doc or PDF), or just use a sheet of paper to write your answers down. This project is meant for you to have fun as you explore the Smithsonian Museums. Your first question is located at the bottom of the box to the right.
Were We are Going: The field trip will begin at the Smithsonian Castle and continue around the mall, visiting five museums. When you are in front of the Washington Monument, hop the Tourmobile Sightseeing Tram to visit the memorial monuments in Washington, D. C.
Route Map: You can further explore the map by clicking on the location pegs.

Field Note: There is so much to see in Washington, D. C. that it would be impossible to tour everything in this one virtual field trip. As you answer your questions list additional places you would like to investigate after the field trip is completed.
