Second Graders at Grand Ridge use Google Expeditions for the First Time

Second Graders at Grand Ridge use Google Expeditions for the First Time

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 3 May, 2019

Earlier this spring, Mrs. Houghton’s second grade class at Grand Ridge Elementary took their first virtual field trip with the use of Google Expedition devices. The devices are used as a support tool for Issaquah School District social studies curriculum by exploring various communities around the world. From the comfort of their desks, students were instantly transported to China, Iceland, and Ethiopia. Through guided questions, students were able to identify and discuss the goods and services offered in various communities across the globe, as well as recognize how wants and needs can vary based on where you live.
