Homeschool Field Trip Planning Tips

One field trip a year, like in traditional schooling, just won’t cut it for my kids. They love to learn outdoors, they love to explore, and they love to get out of the house. Field trips provide an out for them and an educational advantage for me.

Kids can learn from their field trip experiences, they can write about them, work the trips around what they are currently learning in homeschool and make amazing family memories.

A field trip that is successful is only due to the successful planning that goes into it. These awesome tips are designed for small and large families alike. They will help you coordinate arrival and departure times, carpooling, and parking options. No more stressing out last minute for tickets you got on discount for your next field trip.
