Virtual Field Trip – ND State Capitol Building

Today I had an amazing time connecting with Mrs. Swenson and her 4th grade classroom.  We connected virtually by Google Hangouts on Air and toured the North Dakota State Capitol Building.  This 4th grade class is located in Wyndmere, North Dakota.  Wyndmere is 3 hours and 10 minutes from Bismarck so this experience would take time and money to come all the way to Bismarck.  This experience broke down the walls of the classroom and for 40 minutes, students experienced something they may not have before.  Jeremy Holkup and Paul Jensen added to the fun to make this activity work well. I’ve embedded the video below so go ahead and take the tour for yourself.
