FIELD TRIPS

On any given day at Heartland Events you'll see the sights and hear the sounds of children laughing, learning and playing. Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students has long been a priority for us. We believe it's important that the heritage and dynamics of agriculture is something that all children have the chance to be exposed to. It just so happens that we're able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way. We invite you to bring your students to come get lost in our classroom!

Teaching Resources:

Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learned afterwards. We are pleased to offer our Classroom in the Corn learning series to make your field trip more exciting and memorable as well as a better learning experience. These Teacher Resource Guides are broken into separate grade ranges and each include: activity goals, National Curriculum Standards, preparation required, materials needed, worksheets, and step-by-step instructions. Upon scheduling your field trip, you will receive instructions on how to access that material.  (Offered Seasonally during Maze)
