Field Trips

Field trips are an integral part of many classes. Each program takes regular trips during the day to enrich the curriculum and take advantage of the wonderful resources that are available at Indiana University and in and around Bloomington. In an ecology class, students went to a local water treatment plant. In an afternoon music class, students learned about Hoagy Carmichael and then visited his grave to play “Heart and Soul” for him. During their Mysteries Theme the early childhood students went on a snapshot scavenger hunt around the neighborhood and solved a riddle at Cascades Park when they discovered the waterfall.
