For example, teachers must completea number of additional tasks before the actual trip.These include applying for administrative approval from the appropriate individuals, andnotifying parents/guardians to obtain permission for the children to participate in the tripGood planning must precede all field trips. Teachers must consider the needs of the children andthe requirements of the particular field trip site.
Meaningful field trips should tie into the childrens educational needs and interests. Planningmust also address the curriculum and, ideally, focus on the standards.Successful field trips planner must consider safety issues. Are there any hazards involved? Doyou have enough parents or volunteers? Have arrangements been made for children with specialneeds?Value Proposition for School VisitsBy schools bringing their children to Nielson Library, they get to 1. Field trips provide real experiences related to all content areas. 2. Field trips extend learning by expanding a childs world and provide a framework for learning. 3. Field trips enrich and expand the curriculum. Through field trips Children begin to think outside the box, as well as learning outside of the classroom. 4. Field trips strengthen observation skills by immersing children into sensory activities. 5. Field trips increase childrens knowledge in a particular subject area. 6. Field trips expand childrens awareness of their own community.Interactive LearningField trips help students interact with what they are learning.EntertainmentField trips provide entertainment for students. They often serve as a powerful motivator forstudents, stirring up excitement as the trip nears. Breaking away from the routine provides kidswith a refresher that might make them more focused back in the classroom. Learning and funmake a great combination. Field trips are considered fun, but the children learn as well, whetherthey realize it or not.Extension of Classroom StudyField trips take the book learning from the classroom and extend it to life. Students oftenquestion the importance of topics they study in class.
There are also plenty of opportunities to incorporate the field trip experience back into classroomactivity after returning to school. Through presentations, slide shows and answering questions,the kids can instill the lessons garnered on the field trip.Social InteractionLeaving the classroom for a field trip places the kids in a different social environment. Theyencounter a new set of adults and possibly other children during the course of the average fieldtrip. These interactions teach them how to behave in different settings. They employ more self-control because it is a less contained environment than the classroom. It fosters a sense ofteamwork and community among the students as they experience a field trip together.New Experiences Many children dont get to experience the typical field trip locations with their families. Aschool trip gives students the opportunity to experience new venues. Because of moneyconstraints or lack of resources, not all parents are able to take their kids to zoos, museums andother field trip destinations. While field trips take a great deal of work and energy, broadeningthe horizons of the students is worth it.
