  1. 1. Making the most of community resources and field trips
  2. 2. “Field trips offer an excellent bridge between the work of the school and the work of the world outside”
  3. 3. OBJECTIVES 1. To facilitate optimum learning experiences through educational field trips . 2. To provide a variety of experiences and enhance the student's educational opportunities.

  5. 5. For preliminary planning by the teacher, Brown (1969) proposes the following: Make the preliminary contacts, a tour on final arrangements with the place to be visited. Make the final arrangements with the school principal about the details of the trip: time, schedule, transportation arrangements, finances, and permission slips from parents. Make a tentative route plan, subject to later alteration based on class planning and objectives. Try to work out mutually satisfactory arrangements with other teachers if the trip will conflict with their classes.
  6. 6. Discuss the objectives of the trip and write them down. The main objective should be included in the permit slip given to the parents and should be consulted later when the trip is evaluated. Prepare a list of questions to send ahead of the guide of the study trip. Define safety and behavior standards for the journey there and for the field trip site itself. Discuss appropriate dress. Comfortable shoes for walking are important. Before a trip, use a variety of learning materials in order to give each student a background for the trip.
  7. 7. Preplanning with others to join the trip Other people accompanying the group need to be oriented on the objectives, route, behavior standards required of everyone so they can help enforce these standards. These may be parents who will assist the teachers, other teachers and/or school administers.
  8. 8. Taking the field trip •Distribute route map of places to be observed. •Upon arriving at the destination, teacher should check the group and introduce the guide. •Special effort should be made to ensure that: The trip keeps to the time schedule The students have the opportunity to obtain answers to questions The group participates courteously in the entire trip The guide sticks closely to the list questions.
