My family uses My Father’s World for our home school curriculum. One thing that I love about it is that is uses a 4-day school week. That leaves Fridays to be a make-up day, light day, or field trip day. This year, my kids and I are going to try to take field trips around our city on Fridays. We are challenging ourselves to try a lot of new places.
Our latest field trip was to the Science Center of Iowa. We have been there several times before, and the kids always have a great time and learn lot. This time, they especially loved making and launching rockets, and going to the planetarium where they learned more about Orion, a constellation we have studied a bit this year.
Check out varied admission prices here.
The highlight of the trip was that WHO TV was doing a live noon weather broadcast in which the kids got to participate. Check out their calender if you’d like to participate.
