GPB is traveling all over Georgia to bring our state's rich history and culture to teachers and students. Each field trip brings the location to life with interviews, 360-degree panoramic photography, interactive elements, discussion prompts, and videos. Teachers will be able help students explore these historic locations by accessing the virtual field trips through the web and tablets. The field trips also align with the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for 8th grade social studies, as well as the content from GPB’s Georgia Studies Digital Textbook. Note: You no longer need a login and password to access the virtual field trips. You will see a 'sign in' button but please disregard.
