North Newton Teachers Give Students Global Experiences with Google Expeditions

Jordan Caldwell, North Newton’s Digital Learning Facilitator, has been working with teachers to provide North Newton students with opportunities to explore the world and more through Google Expeditions.
Ms. Hoke took her class on a trip inside the human body for an up close look at the Circulatory System.  She used the Read It, Explore It, Research It, Watch It format.
Ms. Lockwood took her class on a trip to the Great Wall of China and asked critical thinking questions about reasons for building the wall, the history behind it, and challenges it took to build it.  She did an amazing job of leading things off by going over expectations with each group individually as they visited the expeditions.
Becky Lockwood takes her students on a virtual tour of the Great Wall of China with the help of Google Expeditions.
