First Grade Students Learn from Virtual Reality

Pennsbury Technology Department staff mem­ber, Amanda D’Amico, host­ed a vir­tu­al real­i­ty tour of aquat­ic life around the globe for first grade stu­dents at Penn Valley Elementary School. The stu­dents first read a non­fic­tion piece about ani­mals and their traits for sur­vival. The vir­tu­al real­i­ty tour brought to life the amaz­ing adap­ta­tions of under­wa­ter life around the world and how these crea­tures sur­vive and thrive in their habi­tats. “The stu­dents were in awe of the beau­ti­ful sights and for the abil­i­ty to make read­ing come alive!” shared Gifted Support teacher, Kara Covello.
