Learning From the World Around Us

So much learning can happen from simply exploring the world around us. Field trips can be such a beneficial way to add to the learning experience. Students get a chance to make real world connections to what they are learning in the classroom, while they practice integrating literacy, math and content standards.

Visiting the city hall during a unit on Government give students to see the government in action. Here’s a blog post I wrote with suggestions on how to cover all of your standards during a trip to city hall: The Lawmakers are In – Time for a Field Trip.

Visit a nature preserve during an Animal Habitats unit to see some animal habitats up close and personal. Here’s a blog post I wrote with suggestions on how to cover all of your standards during a trip to a nature preserve: An Exploring Nature Field Trip.

Visit a local factory during a unit on Economics to give students a real understanding of raw materials versus manufactured products. Here’s a blog post I wrote with suggestions on how to cover all of your standards during a trip to a factory or business: Behind the Scenes Factory Tours Have Learning Benefits for Kids.

Visit your local landforms during an Earth Science unit on Erosion or Rock Formations so students can truly put their hands on the causing factors of rock changes. Here’s a blog post I wrote with suggestions on how to cover all of your standards during a trip to a local landform: What Landforms Do You Live Near?
