Ed Tech 502 Module 10: Virtual Field Trip to Earth’s Center:

In this week’s assignment, we created a virtual field trip.  I almost did a trip through solar system, but chose to go down & do a trip through the layers.  Finding content was challenging in that most every website, movie, image, is of all the layers rather than just one.  I will use this in class this year, most likely, students will have to do some of this outside of school as YouTube is blocked at our school.

The code was time consuming, but satisfying to create the  CSS once & then have it go to all the pages.

Here is the fieldtrip. Here is my 502 page.
