In my district, for years and years, each grade level had specific field trips they took. In the past few years, field trips have been cut from the district budget. Our PTO has stepped up, and now funds field trips. Each grade level makes their request. In my teaching career, these are the field trips I have attended:
-zoo (multiple times)
-one room school house
- University art lab
Here are some of my take aways from Chapter 3.
Here are links to a few virtual field trips, depending on what you are studying!
The San Diego Zoo Virtual Field Trip has animal cams and even includes lessons hosted by zookeepers!
Colonial Williamsburg has a varitety of virtual field trips for students including topics on the economy during the 1700s, the Revolutionary War, and jobs during the 1700s.
The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History allows students to visit the entire museum!
