Here’s one of the Nearpod lessons: Great Wall of China

Here are some lessons that I created:

Creating and Viewing Virtual School/Classroom Tours

What is Virtual Reality?

I will be creating lessons over the summer and would love to hear what you think about this resource!



As a writer and reading specialist, I wake up every day hoping to find the right words to create books, celebrate readers, and thank all the writers that inspire me every day.
