I like the idea of having my students visit places they might not get to otherwise. I would like to have them connect with authors and talk about the books they have written.
I like the information to have students view places that they will not be able to go and visit, but they can see them on the computer. It should give them the sense of real world learning.

Great advice on reaching out to national parks. I'm excited to try some of these ideas.
