If you have been following our journey, you know that we have been working on a unit about the 50 states. If you are new to our journey or just visiting, you can visit this post to read more about the unit we have been working on. We love field trips and are blessed to have a local museum that we love to visit.
The Mayborn Museum hosts a number of fantastic traveling exhibits each year. Currently, they have a really fun, hands-on exhibit directed at learning about the 50 states. It is called Weebles Coast to Coast. Since it fit in with our unit study, we have made a point of visiting this exhibit. This field trip was incredibly fun and we will be going back again soon since it is here for a while longer.
Here are some of the fun things that the girls got to do and learn about during the field trip to the Mayborn.
For our first visit, I just let the girls explore. They ran from state to state (it was almost completely empty of visitors when we went) and explored and played. When we go back, the girls will have a scavenger hunt to complete that I am making for them.
If you get the chance to visit this exhibit, do! I highly recommend it. There are so many learning opportunities. At Home.
