Virtual Field Trips — Social Studies (US History)

US History Field Trips

Here’s a few field trips and tours (which is by no means comprehensive) that you can take from home, or send your students on when you’re running low on some remote lessons!

American Battlefield Trust  — Take 360° tours of Revolutionary War and Civil War battlefields.

Colonial Williamsburg — Various webcams from the historical district in Colonial Williamsburg (not as busy right now with COVID closures, but great during busy times)

Ellis Island — A 3D vitual tour of Ellis Island from the National Park Service. Change the seasons to see the site throughout the year and learn about US Immigration in the late 19th century.

Museum of the American Revolution — A virtual tour of the entire museum.  Couple this with their online teacher resources for a complete lesson plan!

National Museum of American History — A collection of online exhibits and tours from the Smithsonian Institution.
