There’s no better way to feel like you’re part of history than to experience it, either by visiting the spot where it happened or participating in a hands-on program that lets you get closer to history. Experiential learning, which is a fancy way of saying that people learn through their experiences, helps people connect with the past and imagine what it would have been like to be a part of it.
Virtual field trips offer you a chance to visit places you might not be able to see otherwise. Sometimes, they’ll take you to places that are not normally open to the public. Other times, they give you an opportunity to see places that might be too far away to visit in person. Each of the “Moose on the Loose” virtual field trips will pose a question and then take you on an online journey to find the answer. Along the way, you’ll visit places around the state that will help you gather clues to help you answer the question and see history for yourself. You might even meet a few famous Granite Staters along the way. By the end of your virtual field trip, you should be able to answer the question and solve the history mystery!
