  • Often times referred to as 'Garage Mahal', this museum features artists who strive to show fundamental changes in our consciousness and an indication of independence we crave, all through the art of the autos. You will see art cars, low riders, and other interesting mobile contraptions, as well as various rotating art displays in all mediums.
  • One of the most cutting-edge art facilities in all of Houston, this museum considers itself to be the 'Gateway' between the university and city of Houston.

The Best PreK and Kindergarten Field Trips (Both Virtual and In-Person!)

From the pumpkin patch to the fire station.

kindergarten field trips

Kinders are a wild bunch and taking them anywhere might seem daunting, but field trips provide kids with the kind of real-world learning that really sticks with them. These kindergarten field trips will keep your young students interested and (mostly) out of trouble.

Not all of these trips will be possible everywhere, but keep in mind local treasures that are unique to your area. And when you can’t manage a trip—for whatever reason—try our virtual kindergarten field trips below.

In-Person Kindergarten Field Trips

1. the pumpkin patch.

Is it even kindergarten if you don’t go to the pumpkin patch? Many locations offer tours via hayride and the opportunity to learn how vegetables like pumpkins grow. And, of course, picking out your own pumpkin is the best part!

2. The Grocery Store

A behind-the-scenes trip to the supermarket can teach kindergarteners everything from how their food is sourced to the concept of paying for goods with money. They can explore different roles and departments and—everyone’s favorite—try food samples.

kindergarten field trips in houston

Going to the zoo provides students with the chance to observe animal behaviors and learn about wildlife conservation. Most of them, like the San Diego Zoo , have educational programs, including keeper talks and up-close animal encounters.

4. A Children’s Museum

At children’s museums, the rule is: Please touch! If you’re lucky enough to have a children’s museum close by, most have areas specifically designed for children ages 5-6. Look for role-play areas, climbing structures, and water play.

5. The Fire Station

Grades K–2 are big on learning about community helpers, so the fire station is a great choice! A visit can help ease young children’s anxiety (sometimes firefighters can look scary in all their gear). And they’re sure to be fascinated by the trucks and equipment.

6. An Apple Orchard

kindergarten field trips in houston

Who doesn’t love apple activities ? A visit to the orchard allows little ones to learn how apples are raised and harvested. This is a great opportunity for them to pick their own apples and taste different varieties.

7. The Public Library

It’s never too early to teach kids about the amazing place that is their local library. On a trip to the public library, you can show your kinders how a library works, introduce them to the librarians (ask in advance for a storytime), and maybe even sign them up for their own library cards!

8. The Aquarium

If you’re not lucky enough to have a zoo close by, an aquarium is another good choice. Students will get a window into life under the sea, and lots of aquariums have touch pools that are sure to delight littles.

9. A Bakery

kindergarten field trips in houston

On a bakery field trip, curious kindergarteners can learn about how bread, cakes, and pastries are made. Take a tour of the kitchen and watch the mixing of ingredients and the baking process. Some bakeries even offer kids’ activities, like cookie decorating!

A farm field trip is a great way to connect children to agriculture. Plus, there are all kinds: dairy farms, poultry farms, apiaries, and more. You might try a large commercial dairy farm or a smaller family-owned hobby farm.

Virtual Kindergarten Field Trips

1. an egg farm.

kindergarten field trips in houston

We love these virtual egg farm field trips from the American Egg Board. Make sure you catch the elementary-friendly versions of Hertzfeld Poultry and Creighton Brothers Farms.

[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6wbfVWVk8Q[/embedyt]

Most zoos have live webcams in some of their most popular exhibits, such as the Panda Cam at Zoo Atlanta . However, some zoos offer a more in-depth look. You’ll definitely want to check out the San Diego Zoo .

3. The Aquarium

[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY8__n13tKM[/embedyt]

It’s a similar story with aquariums. You have your pick of live webcams, but our favorites are the Georgia Aquarium’s Ocean Voyager webcam (wait for the whale shark!) and the “jellycam” at Monterey Bay Aquarium (so soothing). And definitely check out  The Maritime Aquarium where you can register for their virtual programs (try Fish Tales, A House for a Hermit Crab, or Shark Safari).

4. Boston Children’s Museum

“Walk” through all three floors of the Boston Children’s Museum on this virtual tour . Direct your students to the Countdown to Kindergarten exhibit.

What are your favorite kindergarten field trips? Come and share in our WeAreTeachers HELPLINE group on Facebook.

Chaperone Program

Chaperone calculations are as follows:

  • One free adult chaperone for every ten students grades K-12
  • One free adult chaperone for every five Pre-K students
  • One free adult chaperone for every one Person with Special Needs (PSN)

Chaperones must accompany their groups for the duration of the visit. Free chaperon tickets will be added automatically to your cart according to the ratio above. Teachers, staff, and bus driver are considered part of this ratio. Purchase additional adult discounted tickets for any adults not part of that ratio. Tickets are not available to purchase at the gate.

Buses and Parking

All bus drivers must unload students at Hermann Park Drive curbside, between Gates 4 and 7. A Zoo Ranger/Security Officer will assist teachers and students during unloading. This area is designated as bus parking so buses may remain there once the children have been unloaded. A security officer will patrol this area for the duration of the field trip. At the end of your students’ visit, you will load students, chaperones and teachers back at the curb at Hermann Park Drive where originally dropped off. Zoo Rangers will assist with making sure all students load buses safely.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to grow in support of our mission to connect communities with animals, inspiring action to save wildlife.

This area is designated as bus parking so buses may remain there once the children have been unloaded. A security officer will patrol this area for the duration of the field trip.

What if a student or chaperone in my group is arriving late?

Tickets for late arrivals may be left at Guest Services for pick up. Upon checking in and retrieving their ticket, they will then be granted entry separate from your group.

What if I do not have enough tickets or a chaperon needs to buy a ticket?

Any extra adult tickets not already booked for your field trip will need to be purchased, in advance, on the website like other general admission tickets.

If you need more tickets, you are welcome to book through the field trip page for additional tickets if capacity allows (enter zero for bus quantity), or purchase regular tickets online as regular guests, either through discounted group tickets or daytime admission tickets .

Where can we store our lunches?

You are welcome to bring outside food and drink, however, there is no storage area available for these items. We have several picnic and shady areas around the Zoo where you may enjoy your lunch. We suggest choosing a place ahead of time and communicating that location to your group. We appreciate you reminding students to pick up after themselves before departing.

What must I do if an emergency occurs while we are at the Zoo?

If you are in need of assistance while on Zoo grounds, look for a Zoo Ranger wearing a red polo shirt. If you are unable to locate a Ranger, call 713-533-6500.

What rules should we follow during our visit?

The Foundational Pillars of our Program that Make Challenge Island the Go-To Choice for Millions of Parents and Educators

STEM + ART = STEAM

"To develop a complete mind, study the science of art; study the art of science; realize that everything connects to everything else." - Leonardo DaVinci

21st Century Skills

We foster the fundamental skills kids need to thrive today and tomorrow including creativity, collaboration, communication, flexibility and leadership.

Higher Level Thinking Skills

Our programs promote deep, critical, analytical and creative thinking abilities in kids which help ensure their long-term academic and professional success.

Project Based Learning

Our STEAM Teams® engage in collaborative, inquiry-based, student-driven learning grounded in real world connections and meaningful problem-solving.

Island Destinations

Whimsical island ambience combined with cross-curricular themes make the Challenge Island experience an unforgettable adventure.

Social-Emotional Learning

We foster the social and emotional intelligence children need to form healthy relationships, make positive choices and find fulfillment in life.

Research shows that a Challenge-Island-palm-tree-like ability to be flexible and strong through life’s ”storms” is far more essential to future success than IQ.

Steam Teams

No child is an island which is why kids tackle our hundreds of proprietary challenges by combining their strengths with those of a STEAM Team of friends.

Screen Free Fun

Our programs provide digital native kids the precious opportunity to connect with their peers face-to-face and discover the wonders of the world, undeterred by devices.

kindergarten field trips in houston

"One thing that makes Challenge Island a standout is what it lacks. You’ll find no screens or digital devices in a Challenge Island after-school class, camp or family night. Instead, kids working together in STEAM Teams, are encouraged to use imagination, teamwork, and problem-solving skills to come up with creative solutions to challenges using a treasure-chest full of low-tech supplies."

Transportation for field trips and other extracurricular activities are outside the regular and special education transportation provided to schools. The HISD Transportation Department pro bono, charters its buses to schools for field trips.    Over 14,000 field trips were provided by HISD in 2011-2012 school year.

Each school principal can pay for this service out of the school's budget and/or charge a fee to parents. School principals may also contract with a local private bus company instead of the HISD Transportation Department.

The Field Trip Department within HISD only coordinates field trips for HISD Vehicles. Field trips use equipment that would otherwise sit idle during the day, allowing more efficient use of resources

Houston-area schools scrap field trips to see ‘james and the giant peach’ over concerns about cross-gender casting at main street theater.

Schools from Spring Branch ISD, along with local religious schools, are among those to cancel planned visits to watch theatrical performances of the famed children’s story.

James and the Giant Peach Cast

Nine schools in the Houston area have scrapped planned field trips to watch performances of "James and the Giant Peach" at Main Street Theater, which is attributing the cancellations to overblown and misinformed concerns about cross-gender casting for the famed children's story.

Rebecca Udden, the executive artistic director for the 43-year-old nonprofit theater with two locations in Houston, said schools from Spring Branch ISD as well as local religious schools are among those to have cancelled their upcoming visits to Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston, which is hosting three productions per weekday of "James and the Giant Peach" through May 19. She said schools from Spring Branch ISD already have made field trips to see the show, which started its seasonal run on April 19, with the district saying in a statement Thursday that its pending visits were being cancelled "due to concerns raised about the age-appropriateness of the performance."

Udden said those concerns are “completely ridiculous” and appear to stem from a series of recent Instagram posts implying that one of the characters would be dressed in drag and that school students' parents were not allowed to accompany them to the performances. Udden said parents are welcome to attend if they obtain tickets through school groups but cannot purchase tickets for those children's shows individually, for security reasons, and also said, "We do not do drag in our theater for youth."

Fewer than eight actors portray a total of 20 characters in "James and the Giant Peach," according to Udden, who said some play both male and female roles. Cross-gender casting is a common, longstanding practice at both Main Street Theater and in theater in general, she said.

"Except for a few characters in the show, they're all insects for heaven's sake. They're not even people," Udden said. "Every theater in the world has men playing women and women playing men. It's just part of the tradition. This is certainly blown out of context."

The Instagram posts Udden referred to are from an account called Houston Kids First, which has expressed criticism of the local "James and the Giant Peach" performances and of efforts in schools to be inclusive of LGBTQIA+ students and community members. The account replied to a message seeking comment Thursday by providing contact information for a Spring Branch ISD parent, who did not immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment.

A recent post on the account shows a photo of a Main Street Theater actor appearing in drag under the title, "judyandthegiantpeach." Udden said that photo is from 2018 and is unrelated to the theater’s performances of "James and the Giant Peach."

"I guess if you just don't think about it, you could jump to that conclusion," Udden said. "We're really sorry that these people have made such an issue out of this, because it's a delightful show. We're performing it to 300 kids three times a day, and they're loving it."

"James and the Giant Peach" is a 1961 novel by British author Roald Dahl that was adapted into a film by the same name in 1996. The 7-year-old protagonist is orphaned when his parents are killed by a rhinoceros, and he is forced to live with two aunts who are abusive. He escapes through a giant, magical peach where he befriends a series of insects, and the boy's aunts are at one point crushed to death by the peach.

Udden acknowledged that it's a "crazy story" with a lot of "dark stuff," but that it is presented in a way that is appropriate for young children. She also said the "James and the Giant Peach" performances at Main Street Theater are not at all sexualized.

Udden added that the string of school cancellations does not figure to negatively impact the theater, saying, "Nobody has asked for their money back." But she is concerned for the safety of the actors amidst the backlash.

"People pick things up and love to spread hate," Udden said.
