    What an incredible resource for schools facing funding cuts, where field trips are no longer an option!!! It got me thinking....

    Lots more on google. Admittedly you may have to sort through the ones that are advertisements for travel.

    We so often talk, especially in spring, about the appropriatness, or lack thereof, of showing movies in school.

    THESE sorts of movies are things I can see a real value in.

    And I bet that, with some time and patience, you could find a virtual tour of many places that would relate to your syllabus.
