Do you need field trip ideas? Are parents asking for suggestions for family trips? Would you like to gain knowledge to enhance your teaching? Then you need this list of places to visit in and around Virginia.
All of these ideas relate to the Virginia Studies and 4th grade science curriculum. Each idea includes the place name, location and a website link organized by topic. Topics include geography/natural resources, Native Americans, Jamestown/colonial life, Revolutionary War era, famous documents, Civil War, 20th Century Virginia, solar system, weather, electricity, force and motion, plants, ecosystems, and generic science and social studies.
Discover museums, national parks, historic houses, farms, battlefields and more! Almost all of the sites are in Virginia, with the exception of a few battlefields just outside of Virginia's borders.
Post this on your website for parents to use, send home copies at the beginning of the year, or use as a reference when planning your own trips. Plus, many of the websites have useful educational resources to use in your classroom!
