Will your child remember the field trips you take 10 or 20 years from now? On today’s Home School Heartbeat, Mike Smith discusses choosing meaningful field trips. But first, a few homeschool graduates look back over the years with memories of their favorite field trips.
Asking friends and neighbors if you can visit their workplaces is a great and easy way to discover completely new destinations!
And don’t give up! If one idea won’t work, you can adapt it. If you can’t visit a hospital, why not visit a veterinarian’s clinic instead? If your state capitol is too far, visit a county council meeting or a legislator’s local office.
Keep in mind, field trips don’t have to be organized for large groups. Thirty people can’t fit in a police officer’s car for a ride along, but just you and your son could. Think of all the new things you might be able to do with a family-size group!
Thanks for listening today. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
