Geek Reads Kids is proud and excited to present our first newsletter and Field Trip 101. The new school year is starting, and before you know it, you'll be ready to take a day for a field trip.

Nothing will put the ka-bosh (urban dictionary: a termination) on the whole idea of a day out like a bad field trip. As with the rest of homeschooling, it’s going to take some planning on your part. Look around at museums, zoos, historical societies within driving distance. Even in small towns, you can find history and science that you can get out and see. The first thing to do is decide what your objective is. Then go online and look at current and future exhibits.  That will usually bring you to a corporate sponsor page or a page where the exhibit is presently or was previously. Even if you decide that maybe this one isn’t worth taking an afternoon to see, you’ll have the links which will include plenty of pictures and info that you can use during your history class at home. Most traveling exhibits require a timed ticket for entrance.  I try to get tickets for later in the day. The idea behind the afternoon is that you are still working in the morning. Get Latin and math done before you leave. Or plan for a scheduled day off. I usually pick a Wednesday or Thursday. I don’t want to end the week being annoyed that it’s Friday and I’m behind on Monday.
