No-Travel Field Trips


Found in: Field Trips

If you’re looking for an out-of-class learning experience, but lack the means for a formal field trip, reach out to the surrounding community. Call the police, fire departments, or ambulance service and set up a school visit. Or call and arrange a visit to a recycling center or a tow truck company (great for teaching about simple machines).

Also, see what is available within walking distance of your school. I used to take my ECSE classes on walking trips. If the road was not safe for walking, I'd call the police and we got a police escort! We visited fast food restaurants so my kids could practice their communication skills. They had to order for themselves. We also visited a home that had an apple tree, a hair dresser, a thrift store, and a dentist that were all close by.
