This site provides a complete virtual tour of the US Supreme Court. 360-degree panoramic views of the US Supreme Court make you feel like you are right there. Navigation controls are available so you can zoom in and out and move around each room. View the exterior and interior areas of the courts. Each view has a written description of what you are viewing. Interior views include a peek into four Supreme Court Justice's chambers. There is also a visual history of the Supreme Court available for viewing. Many of the areas also include video clips with additional information.

tag(s): architecture (84), supreme court (24), washington (36)

In the Classroom

This site is ideal for an interactive whiteboard or projector. Have the students open the site and use the whiteboard tools to visit each area of the supreme court. Share the video clips. This site is also a good tool to use to prepare for a field trip to the Supreme Court. In addition it can be used as a review tool after a field trip. Students can work cooperatively and research one of the areas on the site. They can then use the interactive whiteboard and site as a visual aid for their presentation. Art teachers can use the pictures on the site to teach about historical architectural features. Have art students narrate a picture using ThingLink, reviewed here.
