Now that the weather is starting to get nicer and we’re feeling the sun come out, students are eager for it to be summer. Why not plan a Spring field trip before the school year comes to an end? I know that there’s so many local places you can take your students to that will be educational and won’t cost a lot of money! If you can’t think of any I’ve got you covered. Here are a few of my favorite Spring trips below:
- Museums– A lot of museums offer student or group discounts to schools that reach out to them. Plan a visit to a museum to have the students learn more about the history and have fun while doing it!
- Career Day– For a “Career Day” experience bring your students to the local fire or police departments, radio stations, factories, or hospitals. They can get more information about jobs and explore the buildings.
- Plays– Bring students to a play or musical. These can be extremely educational and enlighten a lot of students.
- College Campuses– Bring high school students to the local college campuses. This will help them get a feeling of what being in college is like and might even inspire them to attend that campus.
- Environmental Location– For a science class, take your students to the local beach or park to have them explore the environment. They can learn about the different plants or animals out there.
- Historic sites– If your town has local historic sites, take your students there. Have them learn about the history and write a paper about it.
Field trips are times for students to make memories they’ll never forget. Be sure to plan one before the end of the school year, even if it’s something simple. Students will just be happy to see a new environment and be with their friends. If you’re worried about having to deal with managing a school field trip, don’t be!
