Parks as Classrooms

Field Trips

Getting kids out into the "real thing" is important. If your class is studying Missouri History, what could be better than a hands on visit to the Alley Mill or Storey's Creek School? If you are studying Geology, is there a better way to get immersed in rocks than to visit the Round Spring Cave? The park is a great place for kids to learn. Bring your classroom outside into the "real thing!"
