Educational trip are very important for the overall development of a student. It gives them an opportunity to learn from their own and other’s experience.
When a student visits a historic place he learns about the history of that place, it feels as if he is seeing the historic events from his own eyes.
Educational trips that form a part of the school curriculum are very valuable as they provide the students the opportunity of learning through travel, especially those places they may not otherwise get to visit. Apart from this, the trips also provide relief from the drudgery that academic study sometimes becomes, an opportunity for close interaction with peers that students enjoy so much, and a chance for the teacher to observe and interact with the student in a structure different from and more informal that the classroom.
However these trips emphasize the attentive mind, enabling a sense of discovery and a quality of quietness. And this emphasis need not come in the way of such trips being ‘fun’, as they are meant to be.
