Class field trips are an integral component of the Waldorf class curriculum. They allow for the direct observation, participation and immersion that is the hallmark of education by DOING.
Here are just a few examples of this year’s field trips…
The 2nd grade will be traveling to Glastonbury Farm on June 1, 2, & 3rd to learn about herbs, goat’s milk and animals in a farm setting.
The 3rd grade will visit the Angelic Organics Farm to learn about Community-Supported Agriculture and roll up their sleeves to participate in Biodynamic Farming.
The 4th grade just returned from their visit to Camp Edwards where they studied animal tracks and habitats and enjoyed the invigorating winter landscape with ice skating and sledding activities.
The 5th grade will be competing in athletic events with numerous other students from Mid-western region Waldorf Schools in the Pentathlon that is hosted annually in Heartland, Wisconsin.
Consult with your teacher and room parents to learn the details of your child’s class field trip. Volunteer parent chaperones are usually needed for each class trip.
