Field trip Fridays: the woods
I live in central CA, so the closest "woods" in the traditional definition are the redwoods along the north coast.
That's a good three hour drive, and from what I know are typically reserved for the 5-day science camp in the 5th or 6th grade.
Still, it's a nice place to go, even if only for a day trip. It will be so different from the urban jungle, or even suburban lawns.
Getting some hiking and fresh air doesn't hurt either. Plus, there are all sorts of science and geography lessons to be tapped.
Who says a field trip has to be confined to four walls and a door?
