Field Trip Locations — Choose only one location
Treat the virtual field trip just as if you were taking a trip to the museum in person.

Then you will record your reaction to the field trip with a series of written responses to the topics and questions listed in the document below.
TOPIC 1: Overview Give a general description of your field trip experience, providing examples from the site/exhibit/museum.

Consider how the site/exhibit/museum uses cultural, political, and historical contexts to present its issues and purposes.
TOPIC 4: Perspective Did the visit change your feelings and perceptions in any way? Did your excursion on this virtual field trip serve as an opportunity to develop a tolerant perspective that you might apply in the future to different, diverse, and/or pluralistic cultures?
