Whenever school is mentioned, thoughts of formal and rigid methods are what come to mind more often than not. However, when school trips are discussed, fun and unorthodox events also come to mind more frequently.
Here are a few trips and ideas that come to mind whenever school educational trips occur:
1. Farms. Farms are an oft important part of school trips. Aside from learning where your food comes from, it promotes cultivation and growth. It could also be the start of an inspiration to grow self-crops to sustain a family.
2. Post Office. In this day and age, it’s amazing to think that post offices still survive. Letters, postcards, deliveries, and the like are often what post offices are important for. Going here for an educational trip shows how each branch of government or society is important to each other.
3. Lumber Mill/Wood Worker’s Shop. These two might be connected in more ways than you think. The lumber mill processes the wood that a wood worker uses. In turn, the wood worker fashions these into furniture or wooden material like canoes that you use in more ways than you imagine.
4. National Weather Service. An important part of the news we watch, the weather service helps in warning people about weather conditions. It also keeps people safe indoors whenever a storm or hurricane is coming.
5. Military/National Guard installation. As ‘heroes’ of our nation, it is an honor and a privilege to know what their duties are. Seeing them in action during training only enforces thoughts of the sacrifices they do for our safety and freedom.
The most important thing that these trips can offer is the inspiration to create something unique. The inspiration to make something out of your life is another worthwhile feeling to take out of trips like this. Whatever the reason, educational trips should always be fun.
