First Field Trips

FIRST FIELD TRIP

Our First Field Trips are designed especially for younger students who are new to field trips. It’s less walking for little legs, and the day isn’t too long. Each field trip consists of 2 programs – Farm Kids and Pioneer Kids – plus a lunch break that includes play time. First Field Trips are for grades K-3 and cost $6/student. 60 students max per program, divided into small groups of 20. Requires a 1:10 chaperone ratio.

There is no charge for teachers and school staff to attend Field Trips at Old World Wisconsin. Parent chaperones may attend with a cost of $15 each. Each chaperone must be approved for attendance by the teacher.

Your First Field Trip Includes

Farm Kids — (Incorporates History, Social Studies, Basic Science)

60 students max per program, divided into small groups of 20.

Designed for students K-3. Learn about life for early immigrants who had to pack a trunk with all of their belongings and journey to Wisconsin. Once here, life on a farm often depended on animals that students will get to meet at an animal encounter. Then we get to work in the kitchen and use questioning to explore food traditions.

Pioneer Kids — (Incorporates History, Social Studies, Game Play, Nature)

60 students max per program, divided into small groups of 20.

Designed for students K-3. Learn firsthand how a one-room school education taught children not only their English ABCs, but also how to be an American as students participate in a class and outdoor recess. Then walk home to a one-room cabin in the Wisconsin Territory and explore the space with a scavenger hunt.
