    It’s the most engaged I’ve seen my students during the entirety of remote learning!

    We are excited to announce that California Weekly Explorer is introducing a virtual experience of the acclaimed Walk Through presentations! To accommodate distance learning due to COVID-19 classroom closures, teachers can now invite the Walk Through to their virtual classrooms using Zoom. The presentations will be led by a single presenter for each class participating and will maintain the fun and excitement expected of a Walk Through experience. The virtual presentations utilize music, visuals (flags, maps, etc.), games, team cheers, story-telling, Going for the Gold, and more, all within a unique software program that’s been designed specifically for the Walk Throughs! The presentation will maintain the 2 ½ hour design of up to 36 student participants placed in teams and the same amount of expert word and character cards to be assigned. Bonus features for virtual learning will include various visuals to enhance student participation. Students will be encouraged to dress in historical outfits to represent the characters they are playing (Walk Through Revolution or Walk Through Ancient World), the time period being presented, or for Walk Through California in costumes depicting their expert word.  Team scores will be recorded by the classroom teacher and the winning team will be announced at the end. The preparation materials remain the same and the Teacher Guide has instructions where needed for the virtual vs. the live presentation. Unlike the live version, these presentations are designed for each student to be on an individual device whether at home or on campus.

    COVID 19 UPDATE – IN PERSON PRESENTATIONS

    We at California Weekly Explorer understand that the continued closures of schools is exceedingly difficult. These are trying times for our families and for those of you who give tirelessly to provide a valuable learning experience to children. Students are missing out on some of their favorite activities and school experiences. This is why we are so thrilled to provide our virtual presentations and be able to give your students their much loved Walk Through! We recognize that some schools are able to have us on campus and would prefer our signature in-person Walk Through. For those schools, we are continuing to provide an on campus experience. As always, the safety of students, school staff, and our presenters will be of utmost importance. Since the Walk Throughs consist of only one presenter conducting the presentation for one group of students we are able to remain compliant with the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for social distancing and for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus. We have implemented important changes and modifications to our presentations to ensure the safety of everyone, children, and adults alike, during an in-person Walk Through.

Throughout the presentation games, music, and dramatic activities encourage participation and comprehension of the curriculum.

    • I’ve been teaching U.S. History to 5th graders for 9 years. This is the first time it has truly come to life for them. I can’t say the same for the previous years where we didn’t have this presentation. AMAZING. Thank you.
