Combining both fun & education into a school field trip idea is one of the secrets to creating a perfect excursion for students. The best educational outing is one that makes an impact on a student so they remember it for years to come.
While as an adult you might love a visit to an art museum or famous, historical site… your students may not have the same opinion. To create memorable, fulfilling and yet intellectual stimulating experiences that are both educational and fun, we must tailor the event to the age group.
School field trips can, and should be fun. So what’s one way that you can ensure your students have a great field trip?
Try incorporating elements of what they like to do on an everyday basis.
Touch Museum in Philadelphia, PA
As we grow older, we can understand the natural and subtle beauty of standing back and admiring a great work of art. But kids are different. Their inquisitive minds want to examine things and have a real close look.
Just look? In reality, they would rather TOUCH stuff! That’s what makes the Touch Museum in Philadelphia, so special.
The Touch Museum allows children to engage with exhibits and get involved in a “hands on” way. The more senses engaged during school field trips, the better. Your students now can use their sight, hearing and sense of touch to learn and experiment. With all the wild and wacky objects to touch, your students will love every minute.
