Community Trip vs Field Trip

Posted Feb 17 2010 6:30am
Yes, today is another field trip for Kaitlyn's PACE Kindergarten class.
But rather than all fun and games, there is a purpose behind this trip.

They are going to the post office to mail some Valentine's Day cards that they made!

Better late than never, right.

But instead of a field trip, they refer to this one as a community trip: a trip into the community to a specific location for a specific reaon/teaching opportunity.

They have been learning about the post office in class lately.
So the kids will hop the bus with letters and cards in hand and head to the post office.

Maybe they will get a tour of the inner workings of the facility?
Look at the different stamps?
Pack items in boxes to be shipped?
Weigh packages?

All the while, using their words that they have learned about the post office.
And they are also learning about money, something else that comes in handy when paying for government-issued over-priced stamps!

I am sure that the teachers will make it as fun as informative.

And afterwards, they will jump back onto the bus as head over to Culver's for some tasty (atery clogging) butter burger cheese burgers and fries.

And...for dessert...frozen custard!


With a choice of chocolate, vanilla, or swirl, it will be a great end to a fun day!

Have fun, kiddo.
Can't wait to hear all about it.
