One of the greatest blessings of homeschooling is being able to take the children on field trips where their education can be brought to life.
I remember as a child, in public school, we took multiple field trips. We visited museums, libraries, the newspaper and more. When my older children were in public school it seemed as though funding had declined so much so that they took one or none each year. It is unfortunate.
Fortunately, for us, we can take as many field trips as we desire and visit many locations as possible to enhance our studies.
We currently have three trips scheduled through October. Bookworm Beauty has literally devoured all things Laura Ingalls over the last year and as a culminating event we are taking a pioneer road trip through Kansas, Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming. To further our atmosphere studies we will be heading to the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. Lastly, we anticipate completing a unit on aircraft and will be heading to the Pueblo Air Museum.
I am sure we will be adding many other incredible locations to our calendar during the rest of the year.
Where are you looking forward to visiting this school year?
