World Tour with Google Expeditions

Today Glenbrae School went on the trip of a lifetime.... except we didn't really go anywhere. 
We stayed right here at school. But we each were given a viewfinder, with a Google Expeditions app loaded. Using the teacher console we were able to explore amazing places all around the world. We got to stand in a lava flow on the famous Russian volcanoes. We went deep into the 90 million year old Slovakian caves. We explored the Battleship Missouri and the Hiroshima peace memorial in Japan. We went out into the earth's atmosphere, and even further into Space. We landed on the Moon and looked back at the Earth and the Milky Way. 
It almost seemed real.... "We had a good experience using the google viewers Going to Mars and going to the moon" 
"It felt like I was really there but it was in my imagination, I'm thankful that Google provided this for us" ~ Charlie
"I loved learning about different layers of the Slovakian caves and how the stalactites and stalactites were made" ~ Charlie 
"Being above Earth was surreal" ~ Luisa

    This is a very interesting writing to read about you guys doing the Session with Google Expeditions, I really like the way how it has a lot of adjective and amazing words.

    Great Work Room 7
