Teaching Tip: Field Trips


Field trips are an excellent way to help your students relate what they learn in class to the world outside of class. There are many sites that can provide the basis for a meaningful field trip (e.g., aquarium, factory, historical museum). Here are some things to consider when planning a field trip.
  • A field trip should relate to something you are teaching in class.
  • A field trip should be age-appropriate for your students.
  • Be sure to follow all of your school's procedures and requirements (e.g., parental permission).
  • Be sure that parents know about the field trip and any possible costs.
  • Clarify for your students your expectations for their appropriate behavior and any learning assignments associated with the field trip.
  • Have follow-up activities to the field trip such as a written paper or class discussion.
Oh yes - one more thing. Be sure to provide for restroom stops.
