Has anyone heard about, "Field Trips For All"? It's a contest by Lunchables Lunch Combinations for
which anyone 6 years of age or older can nominate a deserving
classroom for a field trip. From all nominations recieved, 50
classrooms will be selected to go on an inspiring, educational
According to a 2009 report from The American
Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the
course of the current school year, the number of school districts
eliminating field trips will increase by 56 percent. That’s more
than 30,000 schools. I believe it is important for kids to see
what life is like outside of the classroom.
I remember as a kid going on many field trips. One in particular was just down the street to the grocery store. We actually just walked to it. It was the grocery store my family went to regularly so I was actually excited to see how things worked. They taught us the specific assignments each person had and we even ended the field trip with a cookie from the bakery. I was only in first grade when we did this and I will never forget it.
I encourage you all to spread the word or even nominate a classroom by going to http://www.lunchables.com/potential/.
