Fun Field Trip Ideas


List of U.S. National Historic Landmarks by state 

There are thousands of historical sites in the United States and it's likely that there are at least one or two close to where you live. Spend the day exploring.

Pick fruits and vegetables at a local orchard or farm 

Your kids will get to enjoy a day working, but also understand how farming works and learn about plant reproduction.

Find out about where power comes from at a local power plant 

We often take for granted that we have power when we need it, so show your kids just where it comes from with a power plant tour– a great lesson for chemistry and science studies as well.

See where your water comes from at a water treatment facility

Do your kids wonder where the water they drink comes from? A tour of a treatment plant can show them how it gets to the tap and what a valuable resource water can be.
