Learning in New Environments
The boredom of the classroom may lead some kids to lose interest in a particular subject. This is especially true for difficult subjects, but it can happen with pretty much anything. New environment can provide challenges that allow for more individual learning, while classroom teaching is often generalized and many times targeted to the slowest learners in the group. Through these luring field trips, kids have a chance to go the extra step and take on as much information as they want and can.
Field trips are a great way to break out of a rut, end a boring subject or bring life into something that seems particularly difficult. It also gives kids a chance to get to know each other and interact in a more relaxed environment, without the pressure of grades or the constraints of classrooms and grades.
