Google Cardboard at Gattis for a Day

On October 7th students in Grades 2, 3 and 5 were able to take virtual field trips without leaving the school.  Google came to Gattis for today and brought Google Cardboard and phones for 2 classes of students to explore with. Teachers and students were able to pilot a new program called Google Expeditions that hasn't been released to the public yet. Through the Google Cardboard lenses students were able to visit, Australia, Antarctica, Mount Rushmore, Great Barrier Reef, Wave Rock and many more destinations. Teachers were able to utilize these field trips to teach their students key points that relate back to their curriculum.  Here are some of the students in action.
