Everywhere I went in Paris, I saw students! I saw students on field trips in the Louvre, on our night river cruise, Versailles, on the streets of Champs Elysees, and even on our airplane. At times, I was glad that I was on break and didn’t have to travel to other countries with my students. It was pretty cool to think that the students in France could easily go to see the Mona Lisa on a field trip. I wonder if they even know how lucky they truly are to be living in a city with such amazing and significant pieces of art all around.
This reminded me of my students and the fun we have going on field trips here in Korea. Here are some of the fun places I’ve been to with my students within these past 4 years.

kimchi museum at Coex?
I have never been to the Kimchi Museum! hmm… I just took my kids to the National Assembly, which is a great field trip if you are learning about the government. My favorite field trip by far is the Boramae Safety Center, which I talk about in my classroom blog here: http://mswelton.edublogs.org/2011/10/28/week-11-boramae-safety-center/ The only problem with that one is that it is in Korean, my awesome grade teaching partner translated so it worked out just fine!

THANK YOU!! I teach in Ilsan, and my school wants to take our elementary students on a field trip each month. I don’t know many places in the Goyang/Seoul area, and I am glad to have found your blog!!
