Field Trip Handbook

MOI's Captain has been looking for the Lost Ocean of Minnesota and they've read every book they took with them, so it's our job to write more. Join 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in writing original stories for the Captain for Storytelling & Bookmaking Field Trips. Check out how the program is run in the Field Trip Handbook.
