Field Trips to Meet the Needs Across the Varying Ages of Homeschoolers
Saturday, Session 5, 4:45–5:45 p.m.

We will go over what will meet the needs of diverse age groups in one field trip, field trips that benefit certain ages so families can make better choices for their family, and field trip budgeting. The hands-on learning and visual stimulation provided by field trip activities are positive additions to the learning environment
