Virtual field trips and travel activities for kids
We are one year into the pandemic, and in-person events are still not encouraged. For those looking for ways to supplement the lack of social and educational experiences available for kids, virtual tours are a great option.
Million Mile Secrets, a travel promotion website, offers this guide of virtual field trips and travel activities for kids.
The guide includes a list of 30 virtual field trips, broken down by the core school subjects they relate to. It also includes a free downloadable six-page field trip workbook that kids can use as they check out the many virtual activities listed in the guide.
As a mentor, you may have questions about things like child development, communication skills, activities to do with your Little, or even how to support them in pursuing higher education.
Each year in Western North Carolina, dozens of businesses and organizations offer their partnership to Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide gift certificates, discounts, opportunities for match activities for our Bigs and Littles.
