The artifacts and displays are seen while visiting museums will help kids immerse themselves in the history they have been reading about. Arranging an airport visit can help kids experience the ins and outs of airports and what the people behind the machines actually do, without the stress of trying to catch a flight.

Visiting a photography studio can show kids that there is so much more to taking a photo than just clicking a button. Exploring a state park can teach kids about preservation and circle of life from the animals there.

Field trips aren’t just for fun. Field trips can be made to complete learning experiences, even unit studies to teach kids at all age levels.
