Virtual Field Trip to the California Science Center

This is a super way to engage students in learning about science, specifically habitats. The question of the day or theme students are encouraged to think about is: “What do plants and animals need to stay alive?” The video does a great job of helping students notice how to answer this question, rather than simply providing an answer. It models asking questions and looking for answers.

This is a really great way to take a field trip if you are a virtual class or an in-person class that cant travel to the California Science Center. This video is aimed at kindergarteners, but I think it is appropriate up to 2nd grade if it aligns with your curriculum. It encourages the use of a journal, you could have students use regular paper, or you could make a quick worksheet that guides them through the video. These resources could of course also be digital.
