CLASSROOM – Field Trip
Field trips are often a part of classroom life. While they provide a three-dimensional look at the world around us, they also give students a break from the everyday routine. All around us, opportunities for a guided field trip present themselves. Sometimes, though, we need to create those opportunities within our community. They also require volunteers and the support of the students’ families.
Even with all the different parts required for a successful field trip, they remain worthwhile as a part of education. That’s why we love resources and everything they have to offer.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Explore the resources and download the worksheet for students. Share your best field trips, tips and resources, too!
Follow us on Instagram @natdaycal and Twitter @NationalDayCal. It’s where teachers seem to love us the most. Also, we’ll let you know when there’s a new project in our evening posts. To receive them, subscribe to the website at www.nationaldaycalendar.com.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
THIS WEEK’S PROJECTS
Teachers offer the best resources when it comes to field trips. That’s why we list two websites that provide excellent tips and tools to help you have the most successful field trip for your students. We also provide a Field Trip Diary for your students to use after every field trip.
- Learning in Wonderland offers advice and tools to help you have an amazing field trip experience.
- Exploratorium provides a wealth of information and resources for organizing the best field trip ever.
- After the field trip, students can complete the Field Trip Diary. Not only will it be a way for students to share their experience, but it also informs educators where a student’s interests may lie.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day® with National Day Calendar®!
