Consider doing these when you return from your school / field trip

Planning activities upon your return can maximise the learning experience for students and also for future field trips.

Here are some ideas when you and your students return to the classroom:

  1. Give time for your students to share and reflect on their experiences. This is great to hear what they enjoyed and reflect on the value of the trip from the students directly.
  2. You may have given your students an assignment to do whilst on their field trip - a presentation of what they learnt at the destination or their observations in relation to the curriculum or subject can maximise information retention.
  3. Ask the class to create a classroom museum. Students could choose an exhibit to curate and share their experience with the class.
  4. Create a short report on what happened during the trip, the class could produce a short video / news letter as a collection of all the students’ articles / experience.
  5. Your class may want to write a short thank you note to their field trip host, chaperones, others involved in the support of the field trip.
    This could include their favourite visit, object, or information they learnt whilst on the trip. We love to hear from you also!
