As I have said in my previous posts, I am a firm believer in hands on learning. That is a huge reason we chose home school. While dreaming up what my preschool lessons and beyond would look like, I knew there was going to be a lot of field trips, my goal would be once a week but we all know life doesn’t always allow for that. These field trips would give us wonderful family time and learning experiences.
Through the next year I will be taking my children on learning field trips, writing an activity up for each subject, and sharing them with you. I hope you will find this helpful and that you will be able to teach your children some of the amazing lessons to be learnt out in the world, not just in a classroom.
My activities will be catered towards preschool, since that is where my children are at right now but all of them can be adjusted to your child’s learning level with a little research. Since most of us will be in a home school program from kinder up, I suggest adding these field trips as extra learning time.
Most of the places we visit will be generic enough to find somewhere similar in your home town but if not, California is a great place to visit! I will be placing the field trip posts in the travel category and then linking them to their coordinating activity ideas in the home school category. I will also have all the supplies I used for the lesson. Please contact me with any questions or comments, I would love to hear about your experiences.
