Field Trip List

Below is a linked list of possible field trips.  The teacher should review the list and decide which trips would be best suited for the appropriate grade level theme. The list includes historical attractions in North and Central Louisiana.   These field trips could be a virtual tour or real world field trips.  Please remember when taking students on a field trip that the purpose of the tour or trip is "Louisiana:  Then and Now."  Plan the trip so that students will be able to interview or hear from officials the history of the attraction.  Please video the children while they are interviewing or talking to the officials.  Assigning them questions and letting them work in groups may facilitate a better interview.   It might be possible to check out the iPods from the school so the students could take pictures or videos.
