Field Trips

Nothing Better than Learning on the Farm!

Are you looking for a safe outdoor environment for a field trip?  We have just the spot for you!

 

We are open on a limited basis for field trips for schools/homeschool groups that are interested.  Please contact us for scheduling and availability, we will do our best to accommodate your needs and those of your students.       

 

On any given day at Heartland Events, you'll see the sights and hear the sounds of children laughing and playing. Offering 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.

 

Come visit us at Heartland Events for wide-open fun and fresh air!

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 afterward. 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 includes 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)
