Try to imagine a world where every child is the same. What a boring place that would be! Every child is different, which means traditional education doesn’t work for everyone. Some kids learn best by doing, others by seeing, and others by listening. That’s where Field Trip Factory comes in. We offer free field trips that engage every type of learner.
Experiential education connects classroom concepts to real-life experiences—instead of listening to someone talk about nutrition or art, children on our field trips explore a Michaels craft store or sample healthy foods at their local grocery store. Field Trip Factory supports alternative education for alternative learners, because if everyone were the same, the world wouldn’t be the innovative place we know and love.
But wait! Field Trip Factory isn’t the only place pioneering alternative education! Check out Hip Homeschool Moms for resources, support and stories from homeschooling parents. For our Canadian friends, check out Spark Your Imagination to buy imagination-boosting games and story-starter kits that foster creativity and innovation.
Don’t forget to refer a friend to the Field Trip Factory website and you’ll BOTH receive a 40% off coupon for Michaels! Stock up on supplies for fun fall crafts!
