The main objective of conducting a field trip for students is to reinforce experiential and contextual learning.
Field trips are a way to enhance whatever the students are learning in class by making real world connections. Depending on the trip itself, students have the opportunity to observe a particular environment that gives them first-hand experience of what they are learning. In addition, students achieve a higher level of critical thinking when they evaluate their own learning compared with what they get exposed to, and they are able to modify their knowledge based on their personal experiences.
Field trips also offer students and teachers the opportunity to interact outside of the classroom. Trips help students bond with each other and also enhance their social skills and life skills.
