Public school teachers will be return to schools March 30 to launch distance learning efforts for their students, but being stuck at home can still get boring for the thousands of school age children in Santa Rosa County.
To help parents engage their students, state representative Jayer Williamson has shared a list of links to free learning resources that will take students to the Dry Tortugas and even down the Blackwater River to learn about shipwrecks.
Many of the resources allow students to travel across Florida, experiencing new places without ever leaving their homes, good news for families stuck social distancing at home.
“There are so many things right here in the state of Florida we can learn about, and even through we are having to stay home right now, there is an easy way to do that through these virtual tours,” Williamson said.
