Take Family Field Trips

Field trips can be a great way to expose kids to the wonders of the environment firsthand. To get the most out of the excursion, the location and length of a visit should be age-appropriate. Consider taking children to a science museum, particularly one that’s geared at least partially toward a child’s interest. Here, children are allowed to see, touch and even crawl on or climb through nature exhibits. Children and parents can walk through it, looking at geologic formations and searching for bats and other animals. Many museums also offer docents who lead tours, telling stories and providing information.
