Stuck at home (for good reason!)? Need to model AAC, or work on science, literacy, or art? Here are some webcams that can be accessed from the comfort of your couch. Many academic and therapeutic goals can be targeted through these virtual windows into other worlds. Some of these webcams may key into your student’s special area of interest. 

Learn from the safety of your home. Use what you see to make comments, describe, or to expand and extend upon what your language learner is saying. Take what you observe and write a book in Tar Heel Reader. Or create some art. Just click on the links below. Excuse me now, I have some manatees to watch!
