Summer— with its long days, warm weather, and family vacation time— is the perfect season to take learning on the road. Family field trips are a terrific way to discover new places together or gain a fresh perspective on familiar surroundings. Whether you travel around the block or around the world, there are plenty of opportunities to build your child's language and literacy skills, sharpen his observation skills, and introduce the important concept of geography. These family excursions will help your child gain an appreciation of his environment and his place in the world. Many communities have a jeweler, tailor, dairy farmer, potter, veterinarian, or baker who will allow children to visit.
