Virtual Reality Tour of the Holocaust Museum #GoogleExpeditions #Google Cardboard

This lesson is for students from grades 8-11. While reading the Diary of Anne Frank we decided to tour the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC. This allowed students to visualize how the world was during WWII. We discussed WWII, Hitler, Nazi Germany, The Holocaust, and other historical events of that time period. For this lesson we used personal or school provided devices, Google Cardboard, Google Expeditions, and a WiFi network all students and teacher could access. Depending on the level of technology, the set up may take some time. Students will have to download Google Expeditions and get on the same WiFi network. Depending on speeds this may take more time than expected. Once students did the previous steps they are to sign using their Google or Gmail account. Next they are to choose to follow the teachers name and Expedition. Next they put their device into their Google Cardboard and the museum comes to life. And it is just like a real Museum tour. Move from room to room looking at pictures and reading notes of what the students are looking at. Google provides these but you can incorporate your own points of interest. We read the Diary of Anne Frank and also viewed many Holocaust survivor stories including Otto Frank. I also added some videos that were previewed prior to the expedition while reading the Diary of Anne Frank.
