We typically take about 2 field trips per year (one in the fall and one in the spring). Last school year we went on a trip to the farm and it was such a fantastic, hands on learning experience for the kids. My students were able to actually touch different animals, visit the milking parlor, go on a tractor ride, and really experience what a real farm was like. We had been reading and learning about farms and this trip was able to give them real world experience and bring the books to life.
