Quote of the Day Back to Top
When you want to teach children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly, providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's if you want to teach them to think.
Bertrand Russell

Florida Institute of Technology Botanical Gardens
Melbourne, Florida
Thirty acres of lush subtropical growth and natural streams comprise the Florida Tech Botanical Gardens. The main site of the university's extensive palm collection, the Gardens are derived from a palm/hardwood hammock that Florida Tech has preserved since moving to this location. Several paved and earthen paths wind through the Gardens, allowing visitors easy access to most areas within the Gardens. Numerous Seminole-style chikis around the Gardens provide places to rest and contemplate the exotic plant species, and offer protection from summer sunshowers.

Field Trips 101
Vicki Bentley
Field trips can inspire your child to study a topic, give him further insights into his current studies, or provide closure to a completed unit. Is there somewhere you’d like to take your children to reinforce a topic this year? Or just want to visit because it would enrich their lives? If you let your support group (or even just a few other families) know that you are planning to go and they are welcome to tag along (think: group rate)—voila! You’re planning a field trip!
