Why Students Must Have Field Trips

My kid and nephew join their entire class in their field trip to a national science high school for field exposure. But, why should students join field trips? Here is my short list of benefits of field exposures:

  • It reinforces classroom teachings as students get to see the actual illustration or application of the theories;
  • It encourages their inquisitive skills as they ask further questions to make the exposure more clear and comprehendable;
  • It can provide an opportunity for new discovery;
  • It gives them a breather as they break from their typical classroom arrangement;
  • It provides another venue to socialize with their peers and community;
  • It is a compliance of educational government agencies; and
  • It promotes social recognition;
