meet me at the corner ~ virtual field trips for kids

I  have just started to explore this website, but it looks like a great resource. I think virtual field trips are an excellent idea, since we just can't visit all the places that we would want to ourselves! Meet me at the corner has many episodes. You can select a topic such as New York City, language arts (book reviews), pets, and much more.
What I have noticed is below the videos there are extended learning activities (questions, vocabulary, activities..), then I found links with websites to visit, and also a list of recommended books to read.
This could be a wonderful resource for homeschoolers and for families.

Coming up on February 1, "Interview with Thomas Edison", a virtual trip to the Thomas Edison Museum in New Jersey. On March 1, The History of Pizza with a visit to the oldest pizza restaurant in New York City!

Here is the description from their website:

"MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids, is a dynamic, interactive site, which encourages individual expression and participation through video submissions from children worldwide. Through these video pod casts we hope to create a community of children, who learn the art of self-expression and storytelling through video.

In the beginning, the video pod casts highlighted the people, events and history of New York City. As this site grows through children’s submissions, we hope to highlight the people and events of other towns, cities and nations. "
