Commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and embark on a virtual transatlantic adventure to the sites where D-Day history was made. Guided by student reporters from the United States, England, Canada, and France, this journey will provide insights into the greatest amphibious invasion in history, in only one hour. Your students will discover the lessons and legacies of Operation Overlord as they explore the coast of southern England, the iconic invasion sites in Normandy, France, and participate in a special remembrance at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach.
The Electronic Field Trip will be screened on Ovee and moderated by Museum educators, historians, and the student reporters featured in the Electronic Field Trip. The screening features an interactive chat with subject-matter experts and polling.
