Welcome to Virtual School Activities for all ages! A collection of sites to live webcams, virtual tours/trips, and other miscellaneous fun educational sites.  (This site is updated every few days, so to see the latest links be sure to refresh the site if you're a return visitor!)

Thanks to the contributions and ideas of many, what began as a Google Sheet with ideas for virtual schooling during this 2020 crisis has blossomed into this website. If you have ideas for other places to virtually visit, or fun/educational goodies to use while virtually schooling, please feel free to add your idea by emailing me via the contact section toward the bottom of this page. Thank you to all who have helped this list grow!   Enjoy!
