Going on a field trip means more than simply leaving the school grounds. Field trips will always have an educational element, but the impact of field trips can extend much further. Field trips give students the chance to build closer bonds with their classmates, experience new environments and enjoy time away from the classroom. Students often return to the classroom with a renewed focus on their schoolwork. Field Trips reinforce what a teacher has been teaching in class and helps students understand the topic better. Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, helping students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing. Students develop a connection to the community as they visit local establishments that they might not encounter otherwise. This sometimes boosts the students’ interest in being an active citizen to help preserve what makes the community special. It may also help to create an interest in new professions.
