Field Trip Dates & Times
The museum offers the same field trip itinerary for homeschool groups as well as a group rate for a homeschool social gathering as long as group is above 15. For the activity or craft we can modify to have it work into your homeschool group's curriculum. Many of our crafts are nature related.
Scheduling a Field Trip
If you would like to schedule a field trip, please email Kaitlyn at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 563-242-0343 and ask for Kaitlyn. We need at least a week's notice for field trips to coordinate volunteers. Our busiest times for field trips are in September, October, April, and May so make sure to call a few weeks ahead of time to schedule your trip.
We have a set agenda for field trips, unless otherwise asked for something specific. Schools will be divided into to three groups, depending on size. They will rotate stations.
Phase 1 (10 minutes per): Station 1: Tour saw room, Station 2: tour museum, Station 3: watch introduction video
Phase 2 (20 minutes per): Station 1: Water table, Station 2: Cabins, Station 3: Activity
This will take 90 minutes.
There is the option for the lunch room as well and of course free play as a classroom. Then within that 90 minutes, if you would rather have more tour or more play, we can adjust.
