Some day I’m going to write a book and entitle it, Homeschooling by the Field Trip Method. I love field trips! And thankfully, so does my son. We have been blessed to take many fabulous field trips over the course of the past 6 years we have been homeschooling. From local historical sites to museums and monuments all over Washington DC, our studies have been greatly enriched by seeing, touching, and hearing all about interesting people, places and things.
So it’s no surprise that I spend a lot of time perusing blogs, looking for more fun field trip ideas. Which led to this week’s Blog Cruise question:
What has been your favorite field trip?
So come along on a virtual tour of the TOS Homeschool Crew’s favorite field trips!
