Homeschool Concierge has set up a new series of affordable & fun Virtual Field Trip Adventures for April!!
We're proud to announce the launch of our Virtual Field Trip Adventures series this Spring!! All of our virtual field trips are live, professional webinars presented by quality museums, state parks, and other educational institutions that offer virtual field trips to schools and educational groups.
These live webinars are hosted by Homeschool Concierge staff in our virtual classroom where attendees come together as a group! We will meet up 15 minutes before the presentation to say hello and chat, stay together through the webinar and remain together for 15 minutes after the webinar presentation to discuss and wrap up.
Homeschool Concierge staff will share any educational links during the virtual field trip that the presenter has shared. In addition, we provide unique educational links and resources that our staff curate, or in some instances create from scratch!
Our goal in hosting trips this way is to provide a way for students and parents to connect and experience virtual field trips with other homeschoolers rather than being lone participants in the virtual field trip space. In addition to the time before and after the webinar presentation, the FB event page will remain open as a way for participants to connect and discuss, share links, ask questions, and chat.
We hope that this format of experiencing virtual field trips can create a small group who get to know each other by attending several of our virtual field trips together. We've made our trips very affordable: $1.99 - $2.99 per device! If you sign-up a week or less before the trip it's $1.99, closer to the trip the price goes up to $2.99. Share with your friends, and sign up early!! The more, the merrier!!

Farm to You! Live Webinar presented by CA Dairy Council (ages 5+)
Did you know that the Dairy Council of California's Mobile Dairy Classroom is the original “farm to school” program in California, bringing the farm experience to students to teach agricultural literacy since the 1930s?
Their virtual tours are guided by a Mobile Dairy Classroom Instructor and run 45-minutes, teaching students about farm life while covering a variety of lessons. Each tour provides an introduction to dairy cows covering the anatomy of a cow, the journey of milk, milk production, and more.
We will also take students on a virtual tour of a working California dairy farm where they have an opportunity to engage with a real dairy farmer.
As they explore the farm, students will see how dairy cows are fed and milked, learn how farmers care for their herds, and discover the numerous sustainability measures farms utilize in addition to traditional upcycling practices.
Each farm tour concludes with an interactive Q&A session, which provides students with the opportunity to ask questions.
