This year my class will be traveling to a different State Park every month. The following link provides all of the dates and the locations for these field trips through December.
I am extremely excited to be taking my class to see State Parks. I have been traveling to State Parks all summer long to fill my own passport.
As you can tell I have been to quite a few parks. I’ve visited 39 parks to be exact! I would love for the students to participate in this with me! There are two ways to earn stamps. As you visit the State Parks you can put the stamps in your passport book. The books can be purchased for $5 at any State Park. You can also collect the stamps online in a virtual passport. The following link will allow you to create an account for an online passport.
I am mostly excited to have the opportunity to teach Missouri State History and visit State Parks all along the way. I know that learning through experiences is the best kind. These field trips will provide those experiences.
You will need to bring some things for each field trip.
- Field Trip Permission Slip
- Sack Lunch
- CCCS shirt
