Why Lead a School Trip?

Enrich Your Teaching Experience

Student1There is a difference between showing a student a picture and taking them there for a first-hand experience. Traveling with your students adds additional context and substance to classroom material, and reinforces concepts learned throughout the school year. Traveling provides an amazing opportunity to engage in experiential learning and discussion based teaching.

Promote Lifelong Learning

School Group LeaderYou know that learning is a lifelong, ongoing process that does not end when you leave the classroom. Traveling with your students makes a bold statement about your enthusiasm for learning, for finding opportunities to grow in understanding, and for engaging with the world around you.

Never Forget

School Group LeaderTraveling creates unique moments for students that they likely never experienced before or will ever again. As a result, school trips form long lasting positive memories. And as much as they will remember when they marched with their band at Disney World or sat on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, they will remember their caring group leader who made it all possible.

Expose Students to New Environments

School Group LeaderTraveling is a constant teacher. Students not only experience a new city, but also many new situations, such as staying in a hotel with classmates and traveling by bus. Students often gain maturity, self-confidence, and independence as they adapt to these new environments.  Traveling is an amazing opportunity to promote the personal development of your students.

Give Experiential Learners a Chance to Soar

School Group LeaderMost people learn best through a combination of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles. However, each person typically has a preference for a particular style.  Students who are strongly kinesthetic (experiential) learners will thrive on an educational trip as they experience the classroom material first-hand.
