Have you ever thought I would love to go to....or I wish I had time to see....?
We live in a world where there is so much to see and do, none of us have the time to see everything we would like to! There are lots of different ways in which we can experience everything we want to, virtually. Is there a place you have always wanted to visit? Is there a landmark you have always wanted to see? Well now you can!
On a smartphone or tablet go to the AppStore or PlayStore and search for Google Expeditions.
Download the app and then search and find somewhere you want to tour.
Fill in the Virtual Learning log to show what you discovered - happy adventuring!
