Online Tour of Parliament: Take a virtual tour of the Parliament of Canada

“This resource takes the Canadian Houses of Parliament out of Ottawa and right to the student or teacher’s computer via a virtual tour. Each area of Parliament can be viewed and has cited historical and social information that brings the space to life, gives context to the space, and gives students some background for future research. The site is easy to use for students of all ages, and the visuals on the site are clear and engaging.” (ERAC Review)

Royal BC Museum Learning Portal:

“This well-designed and engaging site focuses on BC culture and history. It allows students anywhere in the province to take a virtual field trip to the Museum. Each exhibit on the site features ways to listen, watch, and read, and also showcases the people behind the scenes who develop the collections and exhibits. Useful teacher guides and resources help link the exhibits to the curriculum.”(Gr. 5+) (ERAC Review)
