Take a virtual field trip each week to a new mystery location and learn about the geography, history and/or culture of a location in the US.

Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 1
Each week the learners will learn something new about the mystery location. In 2023- 2024 we are going to be in Michigan, Minnesota, New England, Florida, Indiana, Montana, North Dakota, Washington, Nevada and Alaska. The specific location of each week's lesson will remain a mystery until class starts. The lessons will be historical, geographical or cultural in nature.

For example, if I were in Richmond, Virginia - learners could expect to learn about the Capital of Virginia and it's role in the Civil War as the Capital of the Confederacy. 
I'm the Traveling Teach - who better to teach a virtual field trip lesson each week than me? I've been on the road for 6 years of our 8 year, 50 state adventure. We move every 5-7 days and spend, on average, 5 weeks per state (larger states receive longer stays while smaller states receive shorter stays). We drive in our 2004 Toyota Corolla and mostly stay in hotels and Airbnb's where I teach all my classes from. We travel with our little dog, Truffles, who features in my pet photography classes. 

While I primarily teach on Outschool to learners 11+ I do offer classes for younger learners and have extensive experience (10 years+) working with younger children and making educational content appropriate for them.

Before heading out on the road, I was a Professional Youth Worker and then a Middle School Science Teacher so I know the value of project based learning and learning "on location" through field trips and excursions. Just because your learner can't physically go to a place, doesn't mean they should miss out on the change to learn about it. I look forward to having your learner join me on this adventure. 

For one time and multi-week classes I provide a 10% discount (please contact me for discount) for:
Returning students from my previous classes
Outschool teacher's children
Siblings who both register for the same class
Homework Offered
Additional photos and videos are provided each week for learners to expand their knowledge beyond what was provided in class. They are also encouraged to share what they learned and interested them about the location in the classroom throughout the week.
0 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Written learner reports matching the US's Social Studies Common Core Standards can be provided upon request by parents.
Grades Offered
No supplies required
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Occasionally, stops may include topics that parents may want to be aware of such as death, slavery, war, famine as well as government buildings and places of worship. These subjects will be handled with care, in an age appropriate way for 5-7 year olds, neutrality and from a secular perspective as outlined by Outschool's requirements.
