Education Trips & Tour

WHY SCHOOL SHOULD HAVE EDUCATION TRIPS ?

Memories of school Educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved.

Reinforcement

The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.

Engagement

Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.

Socialization

Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.

Exposure

Kids get to visit a place to which they have never been before. This can be particularly advantageous to students who are less fortunate and don't have the opportunity to travel.

Curiosity

Students who go on Educational trips find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the trip focused.

Retention

The type of memories that Educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods.

 

What Is the Importance of Educational trips?

 

 

 Educational trips are important in many ways.

Going on a Educational trip means more than simply leaving the school grounds. Educational trips should always have a major educational element, but the impact of Educational trips can extend much further. The importance of Educational trips includes giving students the chance to build closer bonds with their classmates, experience new environments and enjoy a day away from the classroom

 

New Sights

When students and teachers are together outside the classroom, new educational environments and experiences are possible. Students may have the opportunity to observe many things that are not available at school, including exotic wildlife, rare plants and maybe even the stars if the Educational trip is to a planetarium. Discussing the Educational trip beforehand is wise because it allows students to know what they will experience during their time away from school.

Bonding

Getting away from the everyday atmosphere of the classroom gives students an opportunity to spend time with each other in a new environment. They may be able to connect on more of a personal level without the structure of the normal school day. Students may be able to spend much of the Educational trip day in small groups, observing, chatting and learning about each other. Having a Educational trip in the early part of the term is wise, since it will allow students to bond with classmates they may not know very well.
