Last week, our fifth graders were able to experience a virtual field trip to Jamestown Colony in Virginia. Jamestown is the first English Settlement established in 1607. This VR adventure took the students to the historical James Fort which was built along the James River with log walls for protection. Here our students were able to experience a 360-degree adventure inside and out of some of the buildings of the Jamestown Colony including a church, an armory, the governor’s house, and a storehouse. In addition, our students were able to experience what it was like to be in close quarters aboard the Susan Constant, which was one of the largest of the 3 ships that brought colonists to Jamestown. The students were excited to participate in this unique learning experience and were fully emerged in this unique early American experience.
