Any trip you take is a new opportunity to learn, and this summer vacation is the perfect moment to try it out. The Tutoring Center, Oro Valley AZ has prepared a list of tips to make any trip an educational one.

Build Anticipation

Plan the places you will visit in your trip. Show your children photos of where they are going and what they are going to see and eat. If you are planning on a museum, look for pictures of what you may see there, ask them to choose their favorite one, and challenge them to find it once they go there. Look for movies that take place in the city, like if you are going to Hawaii, play Lilo and Stitch. Play some local or traditional music, too. Get them excited to go to that place.

Give Them Homework

We don’t mean a big essay, more like fun little assignments. Create a scavenger hunt for them where they get there, to use all of their senses. If you are going to San Francisco, have them take a photo of the most San Francisan thing they can find, mail a postcard to themselves, visit Alcatraz, eat clam chowder in bread bowl while walking on the pier, have a conversation with an interesting looking person. They will be learning about the city in a fun way and will have many stories to tell when they get back.

Meet an Expert

Look for a local tour guide with a true passion for what they do. Someone who inspires you to learn more about that place and its culture. Sure, it is more expensive to hire someone than to wonder through that place alone, but the things you might learn are very much worth it.

Collect your Ideas

At the end of the trip, talk about what you saw and how you felt about your favorite things and the ones you didn’t like. Make a list of what you’d like to know more about and later on do some research on it.
