Virtual Fieldtrips and Tours
Although this isn't the post I had in mind for today, I stumbled upon the first site and thought I would share.
The Teacher's Guide Virtual Field Trip site has a listing of 70 plus online museums and tours you can access form your classroom. Unfortunately some of the links on the site are obsolete (but you can always Google the listing and find out where the virtual tour is now located).
Other listings of virtual tours and museums are available from e-Fieldtrips, Thinkport, Internet4Classrooms, and Oops (who give the great suggestion of creating a virtual trip planner and then sending virtual postcards). Not geared towards teachers or kids is Virtual Freesites, which has 300 links, but require you deal with pop-ups and ads.
