Homeschool Fieldtrips, Staycations & more! Don't Let COVID Ruin Valuable Experiences & Opportunities

Since COVID, I have been losing my mind trying to figure out fieldtrip ideas since our usual places were shut down; all of my local memberships (Aquarium, Maryland Science Center, Baltimore Zoo, Port Discovery, Black History Museum) gone to waste. I started writing down every place that we've visited and every place we wanted to visit. I then moved on to fieldtrips that we've have taken and experiences we have had over the years. I didn't want summer or the end of our homeschool year to be ruined so this is my ever-growing list of fieldtrips, staycations, and experiences that you can likely still happen in spite of COVID; it may take some extra planning but it can be done. Check it out!
