As part of homeschooling last year, we had an awesome field trip to the Toronto International Film Festival. It was one of my favourites! This is what I wrote in my journal about how much I loved TIFF:
“My favourite thing about homeschooling is that we go on lots of field trips. One of my favourite field trips was to the Toronto International Film Festival. We took the train and a subway to get there. We saw two movies and my favourite movie was And We Go Green. It was about electric race car drivers in Formula E (Formula E is car racing like Formula 1 but with electric cars). I liked it because Formula E cars are better for the environment and I got to meet people from the movie afterwards!
Next, we went to dinner at Momofuku, which is my favourite restaurant because I love ramen noodles and David Chang is my favourite chef! After dinner, we went for dessert. I had sponge cake with fresh strawberries and whip cream and it was delicious. I want to go back to TIFF every year!”
Since it’s harder to go on big field trips now, we’ve been doing smaller activities. I really like music and art so I have outdoor drama classes, I watch concerts online, and we’ve visited provincial parks such as Crawford Lake and Mountsberg. We’re also planning a visit to the ROM since it’s back open now.
I hope we can go on big field trips again soon but there are fun things to do even if you have to stay home during the pandemic. Here is a list of museums that you can visit online. Here are more free online websites that I use for all subjects!
