Planning Field Trips!!

Postby krystalmom4 » Fri Jun 29, 2012 10:29 pm

Are going over a particular subject with the family and
feel that a field trip would be beneficial, then that's what you
should do - go for a trip. If you are attached to a support group,
you can plan to include other children too.

Here are some guidelines that will help you plan:
1) Collect the rates
2) Allowed ages
3) Special highlights
4) Size of the group
5) Timings
6) Eating facilities

Inform your support group of all these details well in advance so
that the necessary circulars may be sent out. On the appointed
day, arrange to meet with other parents and children in a
particular place. Plan the mode of travel and reach the place at
least 10 minutes in advance.

The field trip is not just fun. So, let your kids bring their
writing material. Allow them time to stare and admire. Do not
hurry them along. Collect data beforehand so that you can clear
doubts. Get help from a guide, if necessary. And most importantly,
have fun and enjoy the time you spend with your children.

Anyone have any great Ideas for field trips( other than the Zoo)
Does any :P

Our own created Amazing Race

Postby mindy8 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:02 pm

We love to get out and do things and I tend to want to include everyone I know. So I created our own Amazing Race based on historical sites near where we live. It turned out to be so much fun we are actually starting to plan for next summer! The kids would love to do it during the school year also but it is tough sometimes. It also opened the door to meeting a lot of new homeschool families also because friends wanted to bring other friends because it was so much fun!!
My posts are here - - just scroll down - there were seven legs the first one was called Oh What do you Do in the Summertime. Enjoy!!
