Going on a field trip can be a new adventure that leaves a lasting impression on students of all ages. While a special trip outside of the classroom only lasts for a few hours, the lessons it teaches can be implemented back at school and at home in a variety of different ways. It’s Field Trip Factory’s goal to incorporate new ideas and lesson extensions that continue to bring field trip lessons to life long after the experience wraps up.
Field Trip Factory reaches communities through a variety of trips, focusing on nutrition and making healthy choices. We rounded up a few simple ways to make field trips lessons last beyond the day of the event.
Parents, indulge your creative side with a myriad of at-home activities that bring experiential learning to life. Step outside of the box with “Kitchen Table Science“, simple ideas that turn your home into a top-secret science lab. In this way, “health and nutrition” extend beyond what foods to eat, but to the larger idea of food and nature as science concepts.
Tell us, do you have a special activity that is helpful in extending field trip lessons? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
