Field Study

The prime objective of our educational institutions is to awaken intelligence in the educator and the student. This is very much important for the implementation of such activities. Educational trips that form a part of school curriculum are very valuable as they provide students the opportunity of learning through travel, especially to places that they may not get a chance to visit.

Apart from this, the trips also provide relief from the drudgery that academic study sometimes becomes, an opportunity for close interaction with peer that students enjoy so much, and a chance for teachers to observe and interact with the student in a structure difference from and more informal than the close room.

Plan the trip with a purpose :

There has to be a central objective of the trip. Mainly visiting a place for sightseeing is hardly adequate. A broad theme or a central question provides a focus for the trip.

For example : Visit to a modern laboratory to observe how doff experiments are performed. Visit the curvy delta to study the feature of a ring delta.

Field Trip : (Excursion)

A field trip is a journey by a group of students to a place away from their normal environment. The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their classmates. The aim of this trip is to observe the subject in its natural state and possibly collect samples.

Field trips are generally done in three steps :

  1. Preparation :Preparation applies both for students and teachers.
  2. Activities :Activities that happen on the field trips.
  3. Follow-up activity : Follow-up activities are generally discussions that occur in the classrooms once the field trip is completed.
