Let's think back to when we went to school and the fun things we actually looked forward to. For me, it was art, recess, and movies in the classroom, especially when I got to run the projector. Remember those dopey movies we used to sit through teaching us life lessons and health.

The biggest thing many kids back then and even today look forward to in school are field trips.  Getting the whole day off and traveling someplace is fun.  For me, it was the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, and the Museum Of Science and Industry in Chicago.

Let's hope all the kids here in Michigan will get to go on some field trips again soon, because of the pandemic like many things they came to a halt.  According to fox47news.com, there is one starting again though.

Here Is The Lastest Field Trip Offered

So check it out, The Detroit Institute of Arts says it's ready to bring back student field trips in October. Starting October 12th, the DIA said groups can sign up for a classroom teacher-guided field trips.

We are so excited to welcome back students and educators to the DIA for field trips in October,” said Jason Gillespie, Director of Education Programs at the DIA, in a press release. “It is hard to imagine that it has been 19 months since we’ve last heard the sounds of students and teachers exploring the galleries. Artie has missed you.
