The benefits of field trips...
Think back if you would to your childhood memories related to field trips. As images of permission slips and yellow school buses dance in your head, do you remember the excitement you felt when the words “school field trip” were mentioned?
As a student, the main benefits of school field trips were, ‘no class for the day’ and ‘less homework!’ However, in retrospect, many can attest to the fact that these aren’t the only benefits of a school field trip. In fact, there are many benefits of school field trips for developing children.
Engaging students with educational content does not always have to be done through textbooks. School field trips are beneficial because they serve as a great way to further develop material that is being taught in the classroom. School field trips are stimulating, exhilarating, and interesting! The dynamics of a school field trip transport children into a new environment and allow them to explore educational content in a different way.
