Teachers, did you make your own unit or activity or lesson plan for this field trip? If so please email it to us for sharing.


  • Read a write up from a student at Kenakena School to find out how they used the field trip - PDF (438k)
  • Generic Planning Sequence for a LEARNZ virtual field trip - Word (249k) | PDF (350k).
  • Video question sheet - Word (31k) | PDF (217k) to use for each video (based on SOLO Taxonomy).
  • Do a class audioconference summary. Making a class summary of an audioconference is a great way of reviewing the information your students heard. It's easy to do, purely as some text, or as main facts on a picture background. Feel free to use the audioconference summary sheet - PDF (180k). We'd love to share your ideas so please send your class summary to shelley.hersey@core-ed.org.
  • Remember you can listen to the audioconferences again from the audio recordings if you want to gather more information.
