There are so many wonderful field trip opportunities out there for homeschoolers, and a lot of those are even better with a group. However, that means someone has to do at least a little bit of planning and organizing. Sometimes that person has been me, and since my planning and organizing skills don't come naturally, I've learned (sometimes the hard way) at least four things to keep in mind when planning a great field trip with a group!

It pays to do your homework and get as much information about your destination and what to expect ahead of time. Many museum, zoos, and historic sites do have homeschool programs (and discounts) available already, so be sure to ask if there's a discount or program for homeschoolers that you can take advantage of. Know the boundaries - things like limits to the size of the group, age guidelines, and safety rules. And then communicate clearly with your group so that everyone knows what to expect, and minimize your own headaches and stress.

Join me over at The Homeschool Post for the rest of this post with more tips for pulling off a well-organized field trip. And as always, you'll find lots of helpful articles there about all kinds of homeschool topics.
