We have a lady in our homeschool community called The Field Trip Lady. She sets up field trips, often free or discounted, for the local homeschoolers. Often, she had mini unit studies the week or two before the field trip for the kids to participate in. Recently, she set up a field trip to the local Renaissance Festival and made such a unit study available. Rebekah, Rose, and Rachel participated and had great fun. Unfortunately, we didn't get to go to the fair because of poor weather. But they learned a lot in the classes. They loved the clothing and found the fact that bananas used to be green and red fascinating.
