When it comes to educational field trips for high school students, an outdoor setting can prove to be a good idea. Field trips for students are a great tool to help improve time management skills, team building ethics and leadership qualities. With our trekking programs and other such initiatives, we can help kids learn and adopt these qualities and life skills. With an experiential learning model, which was developed by renowned American educational theorist, David Kolb, we can provide students with more responsibility every day. This allows them to be comfortable with decision-making processes, and even reflect upon the consequences.

 

Educational Field Trips for High School Students

 

In the beginning, students participating in field trips are given small choices. Some of these may revolve around simple things like stoppage time enroute the destination, timings for morning sessions etc. In the later stages, participants are given bigger responsibilities, such as managing unsupervised excursions etc. The process of consequential leadership helps students build knowledge, skills and leadership qualities within a short period of time. Moreover, students are able to learn from their mistakes.
