Field trips are key components of the homeschool plan for many families. They offer cultural experience, deeper understanding of historical or artistic concepts, hands-on application of knowledge learned, and a place for homeschool families to connect with others.
The Phoenix metro area has numerous museums and cultural exhibits that are perfect field trip opportunities for a family or a homeschool support group. The wonderful news is that many of them have free admission days throughout the month, enabling access to even those on the tightest budgets. The basics for this information came from AZCentral.com Entertainment Deals.
