Field Trips In The Summer

What I love about summer is that there are lots of chances to go out and have fun.  Family fun is unbeatable.  Also, schools have programs that give the children the opportunity to explore the outdoors and other beautiful places.  This is a great time to take them to the Science Museum or a Space Center where they can see and learn more about Science and Technology including the great inventions and space explorations.

Science and Technology is a very vast subject.  It covers many branch of studies.  Organizers for a field trip like this has to categorize each visits so the children knows where to go next.  That was one of the nicest thing my teachers did when I was in grade school.  Our trip was a wonderful experience.

Every student has to have his or her own name tag so it would be easy to spot each other.  If you want to create these name tags beautifully and very affordable, Vistaprint coupon codes are of great help on this on the site.  You can create them stylish and colorful too.

Science Field trips give children more awareness with the outside world and the big contribution of Science and Technology to all of us.  Thus, the exposure does not end there.  Keeping updated is great.  SciTechDaily provides the latest news on this matter.  We can check it out at Science News 2012.

Field Trip

A field trip is one of the school’s extra curricular activities that allows students to explore nature, to enhance social skills, and to learn more about history.  Places like museums, zoo, economic zones, theme parks and national parks are very interesting to visit.

When I was an elementary student, my school organizes field trips or tour.  Because the school has a huge student population, sometimes the tours are grouped according to year levels.  The trip organizers get car rental services for transportation.  And, sometimes, they provide pack lunches for everyone.  The student pays the trip contribution that include transportation, food, and entrance fees.  I remember we went to Rizal Shrine (Luneta) located in the heart of Manila.  It is one of the famous National Park in the Philippines in honor of our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

I enjoyed seeing the animals at the zoo and playing at the playground in the park.  I also remember we went to Intramuros, also known as the Walled City, in Manila.  We visited Fort Santiago where Rizal was imprisoned during his captivity by the Spaniards.  These are only a few of the interesting tourist spots in the Philippines. Schools back home are still encouraging field trips.

If you are planning to have a vacation in my country, do not forget to see Luneta, Intramuros, and the Manila Zoo.
