Field trips are not only lots of fun but they can also be very valuable learning experiences for young children.
Field trips are a way of enhancing classroom learning by making real world connections. The trips give students the opportunity to observe the environment that enables first-hand experience of what they are learning. In addition, students achieve a higher level of critical thinking when they evaluate their own learning compared with what they get exposed to, and they are able to modify their knowledge based on their personal experiences.
Field trips give children a welcome break in routine. Learning in assorted ways can appeal to varied learning styles, helping children to succeed whether they are visual, auditory or kinetic learners.
Field trips also offer students and teachers the opportunity to interact outside of the classroom, thus enhancing their bonding with each other and improving their social and life skills.
