Field trips are among our most influential experiences as young learners. They promote a variety of healthy behaviors that can help your children learn and grow.
Ways to Promote a Healthy Lifestyle
In our tech-centered lives, it is easy to let students sit around all day without much movement. Going on field trips that include physical exercise are a great way to encourage students to explore outdoors and try new things. At Zero Gravity this includes running, jumping, climbing and more. Studies show that children who move and get plenty of exercise perform better academically.
The importance of exercise for kids cannot be understated. As children explore their surroundings they gain valuable experience in communicating with other children, learning coordination skills and gaining confidence in their curiosity.
Learning How Things Work
In addition to the physical and mental benefits of field trips, there are also plenty of learning opportunities to be had. For instance, field trip activities can include scientific studies of how our bodies move and how physics works in the real world.
These field trip ideas can integrate your math and science curriculums and put them to good use in real world applications. As children observe the environment they are exploring, they can ask questions and perform experiments on their own to see how things react.
We all know how challenging it can be for students to focus in the classroom when they have too much energy. By getting out of the classroom and into the world, your kids can expel that energy while learning and then come back to the classroom with improved attention.
One of the biggest benefits of field trips for children is the ability to open their eyes and minds to a wider range of experiences and possibilities. At Zero Gravity, your students will have the chance to get some exercise, explore a new environment on their own, work with teammates in a game of dodgeball and learn about the importance of good health.
There is so much to see and do at here that you’ll have more than enough material to fill the whole day.
