This article is in collaboration with Digital Frog.
Digital Frog, the company well known for their frog dissection software, now brings us digital field trips on DVD. We can explore three of the worlds eco-systems from the comfort of our own homes; The Digital Field Trip to the Rainforest, The Digital Field Trip to the Wetlands, and The Digital Field Trip to the Desert.
Allow The Digital Field Trip Series to immerse your students in the different eco-systems through this interactive software. They will learn through animations, graphics, illustrations, written narration, games, workbooks, and more, as they explore and discover on a virtual field trip. An innovative approach to science, this is a perfect solution for those in the homeschool market. Learning can done independently and is complete within the software itself.
Members of the Crew received The Digital Field Trip Series and had the opportunity to explore all three eco-systems. Check out the short description of each field trip from the vendor site below and then click on the thumbnails below to see what the Crew had to say!
