Field Trip - Natural History Museum

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Last week was homeschool day at The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. They offer free homeschool days and also free tickets to their pavilions if you get there early enough to snag a ticket which is exactly what we did. We went to their spider pavilion which is one I’ve wanted to go to so I was happy to finally see this exhibit. I knew we would be seeing the spider pavilion so the night before we went we read some of the spider books I have on hand. We all enjoyed the books and learning a little bit about spiders. And it certainly was a treat to see them up close moving about in their webs!

I was impressed at how well the museum offered their homeschool day. There were different stations featuring different topics for the children to interact with knowledgeable staff, touch and explore what was being displayed, and just really make the museum come alive. Very, very well done and most importantly the stations helped make my children excited for natural history.

One of my favorite activities to do with the kids is to go on field trips. This one was so much fun and I was reminded of just how much is out there to explore and how lucky we are to get to do so. I am going to try and plan more field trips for the future and I can’t wait!
