I am a proponent of utilizing iPads and Play Store enabled Chromebooks to lead students on Google Expeditions for free. As such, I was honored to see a tweet by my former employer, Gravelly Hill Middle School, featured on the January 9 Google Expeditions Teacher Tip:
Here is the tweet referenced in the tip:

In the tweet, I am shown leading students on an expedition that taught them about Martin Luther King. Expeditions that are useful for teaching about Dr. King are:
- Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site – the expedition I’m leading in the tweet (Free accompanying lesson plan from TES)
- The Civil Rights Movement
- Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail (Part 1)
- Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail (Part 2) (Free accompanying lesson plan from TES)
Google Expeditions now has more than 700 expeditions available ranging from systems of the body, scientific processes such as photosynthesis, museums, oceans, and so much more. There are almost 200 accompanying lesson plans available as well.
If you want to talk about leading students on Google Expeditions, please comment below or tweet me at @TomEMullaney. Thank you for reading.
