1.3 Field Trip Idea: Factory Tours

Check the website for factories that have offered field trips/tours, but be aware the information may be dated. If there is a local venue you’d like to see in a tour, always give them a call first, and be willing to coordinate for local homeschoolers. Some locations may welcome as small a group as one family if you ask! Local businesses (ones that are not factories) may also be willing to give tours.
