Far from being vacation days away from the classroom,
field trips play an important role in student learning. Kids learn invaluable lessons
that can’t be replicated in the classroom and are helpful for students
of all ages. At BounceU, we make planning field trips easy for schools,
daycares, camps, and other student groups, with full support from our
team throughout the planning process. Here are some of the ways field
trips help to make support students’ learning and influence how
they succeed when they are back in their classrooms.
Better Social Skills
School isn’t just about memorizing facts from books. It also gives
kids the opportunity to build and refines social skills that serve them
throughout their lives. Field trips give students the opportunity to interact
in ways they can’t in the classroom, as they have new, shared experiences
and spend time with fellow students outside of their normal peer group.
The relationships that are established during field trips can profoundly
impact the social relationships students have back in the classroom. By
putting them in situations in which they interact with students outside
of their usual circle also helps them build empathy and understanding
of people who are different than them.
Exposure to New Ideas
On field trips, students get a close-up look at ideas, places, and people
that are new to them. Seeing these new ideas can change the way they view
the world around them and influence how they approach future learning.
This real-world experience cannot be replicated in the classroom simply
by lecturing about something new.
Excitement About Academic Concepts
Field trips let teachers make concepts they are teaching the classroom
come alive in new and unexpected ways. At BounceU, by playing in out bounce
castles, students can learn lessons about the health benefits of exercise,
physics, anatomy, biology, and much more. Students can get a renewed interest
in their schoolwork by seeing real-world applications of the concepts
they are learning.
