Field trips provide elementary school students with an exciting learning experience—one your child will surely remember. The types of field trips you can take are as wonderful as they are varied. Try some of these ideas:
• The zoo
• A nature preserve
• A local factory
• A printing press
• An historic cemetery or church
• A farm
Almost anyplace can be made into an educational experience that relates to one subject or another. Sometimes it takes no more organization than to get in the car and go. For other trips, you'll need to make some advance arrangements. Even local businesses will be flattered and happy to show you around at a slow time.
