How to Take a Homeschool Field Trip with Less Stress and More Fun
We’ll spend weeks talking a certain subject and they never seem to fully grasp it until I figure out some sort of field trip where they can see, touch and hear the concepts themselves. Something about these kinesthetic learners I have. By Heather Bowen.

Make the Most of It

Ms. Frizzle
Unfortunately, institutions only recognize the value of the experience if it can measured, categorized, or otherwise documented.  (Please don’t get me started on accountability.)
