Reflection: Real World Applications Text and Experience: What's a Field Trip Worth? - Section 3: Pioneer Village Field Trip


I ask the question, "What's a Field Trip Worth?" in the title of the lesson.  My answer is they can be worth A LOT, if you give the effort.  The kids benefited from this lesson from beginning to end.  They arrived motivated to visit the Blacksmith Shop because I made it such a focus when we were still in school.  Not all of my classes have done this lesson, so I can easily compare.  This class enjoyed the Pioneer Village field trip as they mentally plugged in prepared information, and enjoyed seeing things in person.  There are lots of opportunities like this when we go to field trips, but it takes some thought and proper planning.
