Field Trips

One of the best parts of a new school year is anticipating the most popular activity — the field trips! For students, this adventure is seen as a fun day out of the classroom — no math, reading or spelling to contend with. In reality, field trips are probably the most important educational supplement to their entire school year. But, don’t tell the kids — learning is actually fun!

Looking for some adventure this school year? Check out these fantastic field trips for your Connecticut students!
