    Being inside doesn’t mean you can’t explore the world virtually. Using free online resources, you and your family can visit museums, aquariums and historic items around the world from the comfort of your own home. Here’s a grab-bag assortment of educational resources to help our brother Knights and their families:

       1. Take a digital tour of the world’s largest art museum, the Louvre in Paris, France.

       2. Explore geysers, animals, rocks and more on this virtual tour of Yellow Stone National Park.

       3. Animal lovers will enjoy watching this livestream of the beluga whales at the Georgia Aquarium. You’ll also find livestreams of the southern sea otter, California sea lion, African penguin and more.

       Once you’ve watched the livestreams, the museum also provides lots of interesting facts about the sea creatures, starting with the whale shark.

       4. The Boston Children’s Museum offers a number of educational resources, as well as the option to sign up for daily activities emailed straight to your inbox.

       5. Not only does Sequoia National Park in California contain the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, it is also home to a dynamic ecosystem. Explore the park online.

       6. Make a virtual visit to the Vatican and explore the great Renaissance painter Raphael.

       7. Take a tour of a Canadian farm. Learn how cheese is made, visit an apple orchard and meet farm animals.

       8. Explore Africa with African Wildlife Cam.

       9. Take a virtual tour of the Great Wall of China and learn about its history.

       10. Explore world history via the British Museum.
