FREE MISC. LESSON – “50 Interactive Web Sites for Virtual Field Trips & Tours”

by Mister Mitchell’s Education Resources
Kindergarten – 12th Grade

Virtual tours and field trips provide students with opportunities they may not get to experience otherwise.

Where else can you “take a trip” to see Sistine Chapel, the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, or the African grasslands — all in one day?

These tools may also challenge students to think critically about the places they visit. For example, a virtual trip to Pompeii requires students to consider the quality of life in an ancient city. A trip to Chichen Itza will allow them to appreciate and question the Mayas design decisions. Simply, virtual field trips can spark your students’ interest and motivate their learning in a specific content area. 

The following websites are worth considering for virtual field trips. Some are built as all-inclusive virtual trips with text and audio; others provide only imagery which can be adapted to fit the needs of a lesson.

UPDATED: After receiving 45,000+ downloads of this resource, I decided to update and expand the list from 40+ sites to 50 sites plus a Youtube playlist of 360-degree videos. Additionally, I added more than 10 combined websites, videos, and apps for AR & VR!

Version 8 of this file is now available (February 2023). Broken links were fixed. A few new sites were added. Sites that have disappeared were removed. Please download this file again to enjoy these updates.

Wuthering Heights Student Workbook

Description

Wuthering Heights Student Workbook contains everything a teacher needs to teach Bronte’s novel. Instead of the boring question and answer format, the Student Workbook prompts students’ ideas about characters, asks them to comment on significant quotes, and to notice some of the essential techniques used by the author such as symbolism, allusions, themes, etc. in each of the chapters. I have created this resource for my own classes, and students love the meaningful format. Instead of writing information about themes, symbolism, characterization, etc. on separate sheets apart from the chapter questions, everything is integrated in a simplified way.

In addition, a comprehensive answer key is also provided for the teacher. You now have all of the flexibility needed for your lesson plans with all of the work provided for you.

More specifically, the Student Workbook contains work on (42 activity pages):

❒ Important information from each chapter

❒ Setting description and symbolism

❒ Characterization (you can see the characters develop as the students’ read)

❒ Gothic elements

❒ Symbolism

❒ Themes

❒ Supernatural occurrences

❒ Significant quotes

❒ Narration

❒ Allusions

❒ Sociogram (to show characters’ relationships)

❒ Inferencing questions to further students’ understanding

❒ Family tree (to help students remember who is who)

❒ Conflicts

❒ Literary techniques used by the author

❒ Characterization chart

Please see the product preview for more information.

This resource includes 84 pages in total. Please see the preview for further details.

Literature Circles for Senior Students

Description

Introducing Literary Circles for Senior Students – the ultimate resource for an engaging and organized literature study experience. This comprehensive document guide includes everything students and teachers need to participate effectively in literature circles.

I created this resource because I found many other literary circle resources too childish for my older students.  I created this for my senior-level high school students (although it can easily be used in grades 9 and 10 as well.)  The feedback I received from students was impressive.  They were engaged in learning and completed their work because their peers counted on them.  They also enjoyed working with others and learning in a different format than usual.

The guide includes detailed descriptions of session procedures and group roles, making it easy for students to understand their responsibilities and participation expectations. Additionally, the guide includes a working document for each session, bookmarks and links to navigate the lengthy document quickly, and clear success criteria and expectations for the unit.

An easy organization grid is also provided to assign roles at the beginning of the unit, and a group evaluation rubric and tracking chart are included to track student’s progress throughout the unit. The resource also includes a definition of roles and templates for the work in each session, making it easy for the teacher to prepare and share the Literature Circles Document Guide with each group.

In short, this resource is designed to make literature circles easy to navigate and organize, with clear instructions, resources and tools for students to help them engage more deeply with the literature they are reading.

The resource is completely modifiable to suit individual teacher and classroom needs.

Included:

❒ A document for students’ work

❒ An evaluation grid

❒ A tracking guide to facilitate the evaluation process

❒A Google Form survey to facilitate the group selection

❒ Teacher instructions on how to create and organize successful literature circles

This document is created in Google Docs and is modifiable.

Free Frankenstein Note-Taking for Critical Thinking

Description

This is an excerpt from my Frankenstein Note-Taking for Critical Thinking ResourceI hope you will enjoy this free preview.

This is a description of the full resource.

This thought-provoking resource encourages students to think critically about the novel to extend their knowledge of themes and how they are developed.  The package is a great alternative to the traditional comprehension questions usually assigned by teachers and invites students to think deeply about the materials read.  The instructional strategy used within these pages is similar to that of a “flipped classroom” created to further engage students in their learning.

Instead of traditional comprehension questions given after chapters, students are given guided note-taking sheets (in Google Docs) where they are prompted on what kind of information to focus on within each chapter. For example, some chapters rely heavily on symbol development while others focus more on character development.  Students will learn how to take effective notes and how to ask effective questions thus developing the novel’s themes.  The second part of the sheet requires students to extend their learning by participating in small group discussions where they learn how to ask Socratic questions, discuss important novel elements in guided discussions, and participate in creative activities to further investigate the characters’ motivations.

Each sheet prompts students on which information to focus their notes on and includes a group activity where students are encouraged to develop their own questions based on the chapters’ thematic focus to deepen their understanding of the intricacies of the novel and the literary elements used to develop themes.  This teaching strategy creates independent and responsible learners.  When students have completed their group work, a guided discussion with the entire class highlights different perspectives on how to analyze Shelley’s classic tale.  

All materials are available in Google Docs and are modifiable.

Students learn how to:

Be independent

Take good notes

Work in a group setting

Ask good questions

Be responsible in their learning

Analyze the novel

Become engaged in their learning

To think critically

Also included:

  • Success criteria, overall expectations, and an evaluation grid are included for teachers who want to evaluate the notes and the group discussions.
  • Peer and Self-Evaluation grids are included for students
  • Pacing guide for the teacher to help with planning

This resource also pairs well with my Frankenstein Unit and Workbook.

A total of 30 pages.

Introduction to Much Ado About Nothing

Description

The introduction to “Much Ado About Nothing” Breakout Room is the perfect way to introduce the play.

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students fully engage and understand the play by beginning your unit with this fun activity.

The game includes four different sections:

  1. An introduction to Shakespeare’s life and times
  2. Information about the Globe Theatre
  3. Information about Shakespeare’s use of language
  4. An introduction to the play’s themes and conflicts

Each section includes a section where students will discover information about each category.  Then they will answer a series of questions, puzzles, and tests to break out each room.

This resource includes clues and answer keys for the teacher. The teacher can give students hints if they struggle in their quests.

The game is interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. The game includes a different theme with different challenges. The games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work independently. 

Students can play the game as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the game in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take approximately 40  minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.  

The game includes  21 questions, 4 puzzles, and 4 information rooms.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Description

Paragraph Writing Activity in conjunction with Frankenstein

Very often, students have difficulty with the analysis process involved in literature. Where they not only have to analyse but now have to apply their newfound skills to a well-developed paragraph, some students become overwhelmed with the process.

This particular activity will focus on both the analysis and writing a paragraph using the PEEL method.

Paragraph writing and analysis are two essential components in essay writing. To facilitate this process, I have created a lesson where students can become more comfortable with the revision process by modelling the proper steps from beginning to end. The lesson includes a modelling of the writing process from understanding the topic to the final draft. See preview for details

This lesson can only be used after students have read chapter 19 from the novel Frankenstein.

Introduction to Romeo and Juliet

Description

The introduction to “Romeo and Juliet” Breakout Room is the perfect way to introduce the play.

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students fully engage and understand the play by beginning your unit with this fun activity.

The game includes four different sections:

  1. An introduction to Shakespeare’s life and times
  2. Information about the Globe Theatre
  3. Information about Shakespeare’s use of language
  4. An introduction to the play’s themes and conflicts

Each section includes a section where students will discover information about each category.  Then they will answer a series of questions, puzzles, and tests to break out each room.

This resource includes clues and answer keys for the teacher. The teacher can give students hints if they struggle in their quests.

The game is interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. The game includes a different theme with different challenges. The games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work independently. 

Students can play the game as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the game in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take approximately 40  minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.  

The game includes  21 questions, 4 puzzles, and 4 information rooms.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

Thesis Writing Activity

Description

We all know that the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. This is also the part of the essay with which students have the most difficulty.

When you are able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a work, you are able to write better yourself.

Topic: Is knowledge good or destructive? The subject is interesting, and can be used along with many different types of literature, or on its own.

In this bundle, I’ve included an interactive PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:

❒ The definition of a thesis statement

❒ How to write a thesis statement (and the steps to take leading up to the thesis)

❒ 5 examples of thesis statements, where students must identify both the weaknesses and the strengths

❒ 10 slides explaining the strengths in the examples and the weaknesses in the examples

❒ 1 example of a well-written thesis statement, and an explanation about why it’s good.

To accompany the PowerPoint presentation, I’ve included a student activity sheet with a list of all of the examples written in the PPT. (PDF format)

Also included is a lesson plan with details regarding the PowerPoint and activity sheet.

As a bonus, I’ve also included 2 posters listing the 7 essential steps to writing a great thesis. I’ve included an image format and a PDF format for easy printing.

❒ the first poster measures 70 cm (27.6 inches)

❒ the second poster, which students can actually read from far away, measures 97 cm (38.2 inches)

Analyze This! A Step-by-Step Guide to Analysis

Description

Analyze This! is a step-by-step guide to analyzing literature

I created this bundle to help my students understand analysis and how to apply their newfound skills to write an effective essay. In my 21 years of teaching High School English, I have repeatedly noticed that students often have difficulty in knowing how to analyze and use the information to write with a purpose in essay form. This step-by-step guide for high school students simplifies the process and gives students and teachers all of the tools they need to become successful literary critics.

The bundle includes:

❒ A page with suggestions on how to use the bundle.

❒ Two pages explaining the difference between analysis and literary analysis.

❒ One page on how to create an effective outline (what content should be included).

❒ An exercise using the “Ant and the Grasshopper” fable to help students analyze elements of plot, characterization, symbolism, theme, and setting.

❒ An answer sheet with detailed information.

❒ Instructions on how to use the above information to focus a topic and write a thesis statement.

❒ An outline activity – students need to complete an outline using a given thesis statement.

❒ An answer key (with a possible outline) to help student compare their outline with this one.

The bundle includes 13 pages and two to three days worth of lessons.

This is a practical and simple way to guide students through the analytical process.

Death of a Salesman Unit (Digital activities included)

Description

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman used to be one of my least favorite plays to teach. I found it depressing, and I had a difficult time teaching it in a way that was meaningful to students. Then, I created this bundle so that students would not only learn about drama, tragedy, irony, etc. but also think about their own futures, while they are contemplating their post-secondary education. While Willy Loman’s dreams are unrealistic and unattainable, students contemplate their own dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. You will definitely have more than a few excellent discussions when teaching this play.

This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two options for end unit evaluations, which contain evaluation grids and answer keys. The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.

What the bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.)

The Student Guide contains 16 pages: (2 versions, with graphics and one without)

❒Notes on the American Dream

❒An anticipation guide

❒An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which can, later on, be related to the play.)

❒Thematic comprehension questions for each act

❒Work on motifs and symbols used in the play

❒Work on characterization

❒Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)

❒Review notes for students

Answer Key contains 29 pages:

❒Answers to ALL of the students’ work

❒Introduction to Arthur Miller

❒Comprehensive notes on each scene of the play (to help students understand and appreciate literary techniques used by the author)

❒List of themes and how they are developed – Revue sheet

The final evaluation contains three different options:

1) A unit test with an answer key. Contains 3 essay-type questions.

2) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.

ALL EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS AND INCLUDE A COMPREHENSIVE ANSWER KEY.

The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:

❒Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.

❒Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading

❒Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)

❒Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading the play

❒Lesson 4: Character chart and reading the play

❒Lesson 5: Reading – exploring irony and the meaning of the title

❒Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy

❒Lesson 7: Theme development and review

❒Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)

A digital copy of all of the student activities is included in this unit in Google Docs format to facilitate distance learning.

Hamlet Scene Summary Visual Notebook (Digital copy included)

Description

This resource has been created as a substitute for the traditional “questions and answers” method we are used to. As teachers, we aim to ensure students understand the play’s essential elements, but we also want to engage them in a “hands-on” fashion.

Studies demonstrate that Sketch noting and doodling help students retain information and understand concepts better than simply answering questions.

This resource allows students to complete notes during the reading process and use the images and heading provided to help them know what the focus should be on.

This is also an excellent study and review tool.

Included in this resource are:

❒a note-taking page for every scene in the play

❒a note-taking page for every soliloquy in the play

❒a comprehensive answer key for all scenes and soliloquies

The Hamlet Visual Notebook is now available in digital format on Google Slides for distance learning.
