Learning From the Real World on Educational Tours


Many middle schools across the nation have a rite of passage at the end of the year for their Explore Monuments and Memorials in Washiongton DC on a class tripstudents who are bound for high school. It is the end-of-the-year class trip. One of the most popular class trips is to Washington, DC. After a year of learning about current events and significant historical events, students are then able to extend their classroom learning surrounded by history and given information presented to them on a more visual level.

Many DC tours include trips to Mt. Vernon, the home of General George Washington, Arlington Class trips to Washington, D.C.National Cemetery, The Capitol Building, and many of the war memorials. Being able to visit such museums as the Museum of Natural History or the Smithsonian also brings science and history together in an interactive learning environment.

These class trips invoke a certain entertainment for students and help foster a love of learning. It is fine to read about history and science, but to experience it first hand is to be awed and inspired.

The learning part of a class trip is wonderful, but the social experience cannot be overlooked either. Being a part of an educational travel program with their school allows children to discover their own sense of independence and growth, along with a valuable learning experience.



What I love school trips is that students get to learn outside the four wall of classrooms. And enjoying while learning.
