We took an awesome field trip with our son last week. It was a bit more than a normal field trip, at least the way I remember them from my school days. Those usually involved a bus ride downtown to the art museum or the zoo or something like that. Not this field trip! We drove five hours to Nashville, TN so my son could meet his favorite author who was doing a book signing event there.
On the way, we stopped at the Corvette Museum to see some of the coolest cars ever made and learn a little about the greatness of America and the American muscle car. And, before coming home, we went to the Nashville Parthenon (a full scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon, complete with a statue of Athena inside).
We don’t do many field trips on this scale, and we had to scrimp and pinch to make this one work, but it was worth every penny.
So, what field trips have you done or are planning to do?
