About the Virtual Field Trip
In this Virtual Field Trip students will walk along with Mona Golabek as they hear from three different individuals on the refugee experience. Taking on a lens starting with the historical refugee experience to the modern-day experience, students learn how refugees adjust to their new homes and cultures and celebrate the strength people can have in times of great change.
Suitable for upper elementary and middle school students, they will learn how people gather crucial strength and support from fellow refugees and community resources. And hear from real students on how they support and learn about refugee stories and their experiences.
Download student activities designed to prepare students for themes introduced in the VFT as well as extend the learning after watching with a class discussion about the power of story.
