Hello, this will be my fourth year teaching, however my 2nd year teaching 4th grade. I did something last year that my class really enjoyed! We skyped with a ranger from Yellowstone National Park! After seeing my students excitement and how in tune they were with the ranger I got to thinking more about how I can incorporate that idea into my lessons. So I am wondering if any anyone has every skyped with someone for a particular topic in science? How do I go about setting this up? If anyone has any ideas please let me know thank you!

That is a really good idea. I wish that someone could share some other ideas for virtual field trips but for math as well..

I love this idea! My kids did some virtual field trips through United Streaming, but not skype! I may google it. If I find anything useful I'll let you know!

I didn't even think about math, but yes I agree that math would be great as we'll. Please let know if something is found and I will do the same!

NASA used to have video conferences out of Houston. You might check on that.
