Van Schaick second gradersa collage of the virtual field-trip, including students and their marionettes take virtual field-trip to learn about spiders

November 7, 2016—Second graders at Van Schaick Grade School recently took a virtual field-trip to the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia for a hands-on learning activity all about spiders! Ms. Smith’s students built a spider marionette while they learned the difference between web and wandering spiders, the life cycle of a spider and how spiders are different than insects.

The virtual field-trips at Van Schaick and across the district are one of the many ways students are learning through technology and building future-ready knowledge and skills.
