A FIELD TRIP TO TSAR RESEARCH AND TRAINING INSTITUTE, NAGRI
As teachers, a field trip is one of the best tools that we can use to provide every student with real-world experiences. When students leave the classroom, they see the connections between what is happening at school and in the ‘real-world’.
Students of grade VI & VII were taken to Tsar Research and Training Institute, Nagri to experience the rearing of silkworm and silk reeling.
We believe that field trips and hands-on learning make concepts more memorable. Just think back to what you learned in school, the field trips you took, and what you learned on them are still some of the clearest concepts.
Additionally, field trips are important because students are able to engage with content in a variety of ways. Concepts are presented through different modalities, so students who struggle with traditional learning can feel smart and confident. They are able to access the content better when they can learn holistically. When they return to school, the trip that they took can serve as a touch point for an entire unit.
