After reading Lost City: The Discovery of Machu Picchu, we used VR goggles to take a virtual field trip to Machu Picchu! We were able to experience the beauty and magnificence of the ancient city without ever leaving our classroom! The students’ shared their virtual experience and compared it to the story they read using a “See, Think, Wonder” line of questioning. The students’ posted their “See, Think, Wonder” on their individual blogs! The students would LOVE it if you could check out their blogs and comment on their post!
The students then used an online resource called Culture Grams to research the culture of Peru, where Machu Picchu is located, and created infographics using a site called piktochart.com to present the information they learned! Please check them out as well and leave a comment!
