Little White House

On Monday, May 27, 2013 I went to the Franklin D Roosevelt's Little White House in Warm Springs, GA on a scouting expedition :)  I would give this field trip a B. Here are my findings.

I enjoyed my field trip, however, I found that it is definitely more suited for older kids.  This field trip would be a great culminating activity after studying The Great Depression and World War II.

Atlanta Children's Museum

On Sunday, June 30, 2013 I went to the Atlanta Children's Museum.  Of course, I took the children to check this one out.  I would give this field trip an A.

The Atlanta Children's Museum is PACKED with fun, hands on activities that keeps kids engaged from the moon sandbox area, to painting to grocery shopping to the dance area.  I especially liked how they included the home depot section which allowed the kids to see how things like conveyor belts work.

My children thoroughly enjoyed it and are asking to go back.  Luckily for them and for me Target sponsors the SECOND Tuesday of every month.  That means TOMORROW 7/9/2013 from 1pm to 7 pm  is FREE!!! I plan to go back!!
