WooHoo - Field Trip

So I teach Marine Biology. Today we went on a field trip to the Seattle Aquarium. The exhibits were great, the students were great, lunch at the Aquarium Cafe was great and well, the entire day was great. Students ought to get out more - really! They are more engaged, better behaved, more interested and a joy to be around when they are not in the classroom. I wonder what this says about how their typical school day is structured?

I want to teach Marine Biology and take a field trip to the acquarium! I am soooo jealous!!! As to your point about field trips, I agree. Students need a variety of experiences to cement their learning.

What a great slice for today. Field trips are always a welcome change in the daily routine. How great it was you get field trips, too many are being cut due to budgets.

Aquarium school - sounds good to me. Keeping on thinking this way.
