Chalk Talk: Preparing your child for a field trip!
Field trips are a fun and educational way for students to get outside of the classroom and visit a place where they can actually see the things they’ve learned in class. Depending on where the field trip is, it’s important to help your child pack the things they might need for the trip. For example, if the trip is outside in the Summer, your child should be wearing sunscreen. They should also have enough water and snacks in order to help stay hydrated throughout the day. If the trip requires packed lunches to be brought, make sure to check with the teacher or the field trip information sheet to see if there are any foods that are not allowed. Some locations might not allow peanuts, or lunches with disposable packaging. It’s always a good idea to pack a lunch with reusable containers because it’s eco-friendly, and kids love creative utensils and containers! If your child is going to be walking a lot on their trip, it’s important to pack light - bring only the essentials!
