Woodpecker 🚍 Virtual Field Trips

Did you know that woodpeckers have long, sticky tongues? They also have furry noses and love to eat nuts. Check out these 🚍 virtual field trips to learn even more about these interesting birds!

Did you know that if you see them making many small holes, they are looking for food. However if they are making one larger hole, they are most likely working on a nest. While a loud pecking sound is typically associated with woodpeckers, they also make a noise that sounds like chattering monkeys. It is fascinating to see them fly, with a wingspan of up to six feet. Learn these, plus many more fun facts about woodpeckers in these interesting virtual field trips.

This Google slide deck includes 4 different virtual trips and uses embedded videos. It

also includes a linked image in the bottom right corner to return to the menu slide. It is best used in Present mode with the teacher sharing their screen. Another option is to go to File > Publish to Web and using that link. As always, teachers should preview the trips before using to determine what best fits the needs of their class. I hope that these virtual trips are enjoyed by you and your students.

*NOTE: If the link says you need to request access, it is your school network blocking the share. All items are set correctly to force a copy when clicked on. Many districts block things (including file shares) that are coming from outside of their domain. Please try making the copy from a personal email or Gmail account. Then, you can share the file with your school account. If you request access, I won't be able to grant it or respond to your email request, since the issue is blocked on your end.
