Field trips, especially since I work, can be tricky. When the homeschool groups we are a part of go on group trips, I’m often at the office and will have something scheduled where I just can’t get away. (Thankfully, my job is flexible, but sometimes I just cannot make it work.)
So, how do you fit in field trips? For us, we often make it a part of our family vacation. National Parks, an active rock mine, aquariums, NASA…we have done all that as a day or so of a weeklong vacation or long weekend.
I suggest you find what works best for your schedule. Maybe you can go to a local museum on a weekend (we have done that too). Maybe you can make your schedule work to go when other local homeschool families take a field trip. Or maybe it’s a nature walk through your local park. Just do what works best for your schedule.
Have you been on an exciting field trip lately? I would love to hear about it.
