Your students will learn everything they would learn on a traveling field trip during this program through a pre-planned agenda of TEKS-based virtual field trips, webquests, and provided activities (also available for remote learners). And as a bonus, the In a Box versions of our Discover Texas Field Trips incorporate a content-based writing component to supplement the TEKS your learners are working to master for the STAAR test.
