I don't know about for you, but for me it seems that May is Field Trip season!
Since the start of May I have been on 4! Two of them with my own class and 2 of them with my boys.
Every year we take walking field trip to explore our community. We go to the Police and Fire Stations and to the Library. Not to mention that we have a McDonald's picnic lunch. We work it off with all that walking! This year at the Police station we got to see a K-9 demonstration. The kiddos loved it! They always love seeing the dogs!
We also go to the Lincoln Park zoo which is always fun! The kiddos spend the month of April working on their Animal Reports. The kiddos can't wait to see "their" animal up close and personal!
So, you may ask, what did you do with your personal days this year?
I went on field trips with my boys! I did get to go to some fun places, but it is almost more work than taking my own class!
With the oldest child this year we went to The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, and to the Speedway and Conner's Prairie in Indianapolis!
With my youngest we went to the Michigan City Zoo. It is also called the Washington Park Zoo! We had a lot of fun with field trips this year!
What kinds of trips do you take with your class (or your own kids)?
