History comes to life as Skype takes kids on virtual field trips for Veterans Day


Through virtual field trips, Skype in the Classroom is adding a new level of experience to school lessons. Now, there are a number of original and interactive resources available to all teachers and classrooms on the redesigned Skype in the Classroom portal.

For example, classes studying Veterans Day can tour The National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, with Chrissy Gregg, the Virtual Classroom Coordinator. And downloadable lesson plans help classes to learn more about how Veterans Day became a holiday and why it is still significant today.
