to learn about field trips in Oklahoma.
is FT Cruiser?
get the most from your homeschool experience, you and
your children need to visit the historical towns, museums,
parks, and other educational resources located throughout
the state of Oklahoma. However, because of time constraints
and/or distance, this is not always possible. It could
be too far away, you don't have time to make the trip;
or, it may be that you're just not sure whether it's worth
driving to. That's where
FT Cruiser (Field Trip Cruiser)
can help. My husband, Bill, and I got the
idea for this project as we were driving our PT Cruiser
to take pictures of the Spiro Mounds a kid's book I'm writing
called, Adventures in Spiro Mounds.
