More Information on this Folder

Occasionally it's time to get your students out of the classroom, and into another location, so they can learn in an entirely new setting. Living history museums, art galleries, nature preserves, beaches, science museums, and many other locations are likely destinations for students taking a break from the classroom. Browse the field trip section of this site to find useful ideas. You may find a specific location you want to visit with your class, or you might just find a good idea you can use in another location. If you have taken your students on a field trip which was a great success, and you want to share about it with other educators, sign into your free membership account and follow the links to submit a new article. If you are a curator of a museum or other field trip destination, consider asking a teacher who has brought a class to your site to write an article to be posted on this site.
