Sing a Song

The Field Trip Rhyme

Next time you go on a trip (even a short one across town), try singing this song and adding what you and your child might see on the way.

Going on a field trip,
Leaving right away.
If we could, we'd stay all day!
Going to the [name of destination]
What will we see?
Use your imagination;
Now tell me.
We might see a _______ and we might see a _______
And we might see a _______ and a _______ .
We might see a _______ and we might see a _______
And we might see a _______ and a _______ .
