There are tons of great places in and around Santa Cruz, California. Here are some more
wonderful places to take kids on field trips:
The kids did a fun activity to find an artist based on clues on a cube that each student was given. They then learned about how the artist made their art, what inspired them, tools they used, etc. In the box were even items to touch and smell.
They have some amazing works on display right now!
The printmaking workshop was fun for all ages. They discussed color, texture, line, shape, and space.
We’ll be returning there next month for a local history field trip as well!
We have many nature centers and I love them all! They each have different exhibits to offer and are hands on, where you can touch and explore all the natural textures, and see real plants and animals.
The row of birds nest was fascinating to my son and his friend and the stamp table they had set up was a big hit as well. They made a booklet of local animals and stamped the correct track mark for each one with a large rubber stamp.
This is our second year attending the monthly Homeschool Program. Before
that we attended some field trips and preschool days. I can’t speak
highly enough about it! They teach all aspects of farming, from making
healthy, organic soil, to planting and sprouting seeds, all the way to
picking, packaging, shipping, and eating!
