Fieldtrips

I am currently in the beautiful province of British Columbia for the last week of my 3 week vacation, and today I thought to myself, “Should you be allowed to take students on fieldtrips outside of the province?”

The reason I thought of this is tonight, I was able to witness some of the coolest things nature has to offer, but you can’t see everywhere. So, my question to you, my blog readers, should we be willing or even allowed to take students on field trips to other provinces, states, or even countries to make their learning more practical, applicable, and relatable?!

Tell me what you think!

  1. You already know how travel represents some of the best learning. I think most districts allow outside travel but typically it’s associated with extra curricular activities as opposed to curricular. That’s unfortunate. If you can figure out a way to make it happen, it’s a great thing for kids.
