Virtual Field Trips & Snazzy Postcards


The students will be able to stamp their passports without leaving the comfort of the music room!  The students will travel to historical musical landmarks related to the great Classical, Romantic, and Modern musical era composers.  They will gain insight to their lifestyle as well as learn about their music.  After visiting these significant landmarks, the students will create postcards using digital media reflecting what they learned.

TIPC Ratings

Developing: The teacher directly instructed on search techniques and provided students with a list of preapproved websites. The students responded to the teacher prompts and discovered postcard images using a Google Image Search.

Developing: The students worked individually on this project, but this lesson can be easily adapted to allow for group work. The teacher introduced the class to a couple digital tools they could choose from in order to share their work with a wider audience. Some of those tools included, Google Slides, & Google Draw.


Approaching: This lesson allowed for the students in the class to create meaningful, purposeful, work that they could share with a global audience. Modern tools found in the Google Ecosystem helped to augment and accelerate student creativity. Students shared their work publicly and reflected on their creativity by setting goals for further growth.
