COVID19 Home School Plans: Smithsonian “Field Trip”
No, we can’t take our children on a field trip during COVID19 self isolation and quarantine. Even if you wanted, all of the Smithsonian museums are closed.
However, while they are closed, the Smithsonian museums are offering virtual tours.
The main tour is the Museum of Natural History, but they also have tours of past exhibits as well as limited tours of other Smithsonian Institutions.
To make sure your child is really doing the tour, you could even set up a virtual scavenger hunt. It’s not completely necessary either as the real goal is to get your kids to do something fun and educational to free you up to do work.
