Resources for Planning and Expanding Field Trips (31 Days of Field Trips Series) with Link Up
Field Trips do not have to go along with what you are learning about currently, but if they do the learning can be greatly enhanced. Other times it may not be about something you are currently studying, but the field trips sparks a great interest, and you want to expand on those interests.
Field Trips can be a huge part of unit studies or other themed learning. I have found some great FREE materials online to help plan field trips and unit studies or to expand on the field trip for additional learning and/or writing practice.
